Stella Violanti

1986-1987 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Stella Violanti - Grigorios Xenopoulos
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 21/03/1987

The first woman in New Greek theatre, who struggled for her rights with passion and consistency, is Stella Violanti. The story refers to a real event of 1883, which shocked the Athenians of the time. Stella Violanti is a woman obedient by her nature, ultimately subjugated to the demands of the establishment, which surrounds her stiflingly. She will revolt only when she realizes that she has also the right to self-determination and existence, as a freeperson. This gradual transformation of Stella is what gives her the dimension of a tragic grandeur. Her transformation becomes the symbol of the consciousness of a concrete time, the first decade of the 20th century, which asked dynamically to escape from the ruins and the remorse of the century that passed, in order to create a new Greece.
