''Electra, who this stage synthesis is based on revolving around the myth of Atreides, teaches us that oblivion is unholy and memory becomes a prayer for the advent of justice, even is all signs point to the opposite direction. Electra 'shows' us that one should persist in his own 'irrational' cry so as to turn it against the conscience of those who succumb to any unjust authority be it from indifference, weakness or even self-interest. And as the tragic poet says, 'that point, where one hopes against hope, maybe this is where the human history and man’s beauty begins', whose main bearers are the young.'' Grigoris Karantinakis
