Theater highlights include:
Olga Pozeli (Greece):
When the red Toyota went off the road and sank in black water (Greece).
A prominent politician meets, at a party, a young woman who works for his party’s campaign. After several drinks and a solitary walk on the beach, the politician expresses his interest in the woman. Towards the end of the evening they leave the party together. While driving his car, the politician loses control and the car falls into a dark swamp and immediately sinks into black water. A performance on the corruption of power, as well as on our attitude towards the absurdity of a violent and unjust death. USA premiere.
