Vassilis Giannopoulos' play "I am Lengo" directed by Katerina Manteli returns from Monday, October 25 at the Victoria Theater.

After a successful tour in the summer as part of the events for the 200 years since the Revolution of 1821, where the audience welcomed it with enthusiasm, he returns for a limited number of performances at the Victoria Theater (Magnisias 5, Victoria Square).


Lengo (Eleni), is a woman from Epirus, who lives a series of lives, from the period of the Revolution of 1821 until today.

She considers that in her blood flows the blood of Ancient Dioni but also of other women, whom she embodies with her imagination in many different lives. Thus, "living" the last 200 years (Revolution 1821, German occupation 1940, Polytechnic, Metapolitism, etc.) realizes that history repeats itself, with the "monster" of war always appearing, but with a different face.

When as a Turkish conqueror with the scythe, when as a Fascist conqueror with the boot and when as an economic invisible conqueror, with common problems, hunger, misery, exile and betrayal.

In her last life, which reaches today, she defends the struggles of today's women in correspondence with the heroines of the respective National Games, passing the message that the heroes exist and live among us.

The emblematic role of a "machine" god, functions as a connecting link between the "lives" of Lengo, but also leaves some questions to the viewer in order to "push" the meanings of the work deeper into his soul.
