Royal Portrait – Τhe Recognition – Maria Stuart, adaptation by Sofia Stavrakaki

Director, Sofia Stavrakaki



“Look what’s shining here! A Royal Crown!”


The actors are one body simultaneously impersonating the same hero – heroine. Their deepest thoughts are divided into their vital organs – thoughts that will never be told – giving a complete picture of their psychological state.


The performance is a thrashing of the heroes where they watch on stage the fragile balances of their inner strengths. The result of the contest is the inescapability of their character as the surrealist versions of the two portraits of the two women in one emerge.


A two-sided coin

Maria Stuart / Elizabeth.

One is necessarily fake, but which is the real one?!
