Amor is the second part of the trilogy directed by Theodoros Terzopoulos; it stands between Alarme and Encore. Amor is a scenic composition based on poetry written by Thanasis Alevras. It first premiered on December 2013 and since then has been presented in Attis Theatre in Athens for three seasons and in European tour, being highly appreciated by the audience and praised by the critics.
Terzopoulos turns the stage into an auction house, where everything, roles, theatre props, emotions, memories and even the parts of the human body become commodities which are being examined, appraised, sold and purchased. The prices are affected by the fluctuations of the stock market. The actors observe and make ironical comments for the contemporary situation; they perform extreme behaviors of people manipulating and being manipulated by authority, in an era of global crisis. However, everything is subverted by the promise of Amor, love, which can only function as a drive force of humanizing.
