01. THALAMOS No6
"Chekhov, Hip Hop and the Struggle of Women Against All Forms of Violence"
June 2021, Municipal Theater of Ilioupoli
Costas Gakis trusts Anton Chekhov's amazing short story "booth No. 6"
in the voice of Natasa Faia Kosmidou who brings it to today, brings it to life and speaks to us looking us in the eyes for everything that hurts us.
Through a hip hop aesthetic, full of music and tenderness, a show is created - a poetic collage that shouts: Do not forget!
A work for the man who in this barbarity, in this wild world, he continues to fight, to dream, to sing the truth with tenderness, to extend his hand and offer a hug to anyone who needs it.
An anthem to motherly love, that will save the world.

02. SPEED DATE by George Iliopoulos
March 2022, Comedy Haus Zurich
Twelve characters so different from each other, all together in a space with a common goal: tonight they must find their match… 6 men and 6 women gather in a space with the goal of finding each other quickly and without wasting time their partner. The speed date is a "tactic" of dating that started as a game in the late 1990s in Europe and quickly became a fashion that swept the world.
Faces today, people next door that we have all met somewhere, each with his own problems, with his own world, with his own demons and aspirations, are together tonight with one purpose: to mate! The pressure of time but also the effort and stress to be accepted create a dense environment of conflicts and upheavals that with strong doses of humor form a revealing gallery of current characters and behaviors.
A social comedy Signed by George Iliopoulos and Directed by Vivetta Lainioti is the first production of the Greek-speaking Theater School EPI SKINIS, which was presented in March at the COMEDY HAUS Theater in Zurich!

03. "IF YOU WANT TO BREAK UP… RAISE YOUR HAND"
by Giorgos Kapoutzidis
March 2023, Comedy Haus Zurich
An unacknowledged love that lasts twenty years. A marriage torn apart by infidelity. And another one that is postponed indefinitely, but no one dares to tell the groom. An ex, a present, countless online dates and a house that as time passes... floods. Literally. And before they sink for good, they should tell the truth. Everyone to everyone…
About our play…
Kiki's marriage suddenly falls apart when she discovers that her husband has been cheating on her continuously. Natasha's wedding, planned for the next day, is postponed due to doubt. An ex-lover shows up, an unconfessed twenty-year love is revealed, romantic messages are sent over the Internet... and a house floods. A group of people in their 30s are faced with the complexities and pitfalls of relationships, the fear of commitment, the hopes and frustrations of life, all at a transitional age when the need for love collides with the need for commitment and security .
A hilarious comedy about human relationships, which, however difficult they may be, the author manages to highlight them through their comedic dimension.
The rest of our story…on Stage!!!
