Angeliki Papoulia & Christos Passalis

Angeliki Papoulia and Christos Passalis, actors and directors, create Blitz Theatre Group with Yorgos Valais in 2004 in athens.

In 2012, the European public starts acknowledging Blitz’s work with GALAXY, GUNS! GUNS! GUNS!, DON QUIXOTE or LATE NIGHT, a show that hasn’t stoped touring since then in Europe and beyond...

For their following creations - VANIA. 10 ANS APRÈS, 6 A.M. HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY or THE INSTITUTE OF GLOBAL LONELINESS - they count with the support of partners such as Théâtre de la Ville - Paris, Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil, Festival Théâtre en Mai - Dijon, Festival d’Avignon, Sao Luiz Teatro municipal - Lisbonne, Manufacture - Mulhouse, Comédie de Reims, Athens & Epidaurus Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre - Athens ...

While Blitz’s shows keep on touring, Angeliki Papoulia and Christos Passalis are called to experiment new collaborations. In 2019 with Schauspielensemble Luzerner Theater, they create in German ALCESTIS ! based on Euripides. In the meantime, they are preparing with L’Instant Donné - French contemporary music ensemble - a theatre and music project THE VISIT. A creation for 2020 coproduced with Greek National Opera and Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil.

Any new act of creation is for them an assault against reality, against actuality, against matter-of-fact-ness that has attacked everything, everyday life, imagination, subconscious, gradually marginalizing the notion of fiction which has been, since forever, crucial and essential for the human psyche.
