 ΝοVan theatre group laboratory presented this work in progress, "The Crime C.", based on Marguerite Yourcenar's monologue Clytemnestra, or Crime", directed by Lena Petropoulou.

This worked focused and presented Clytemnestra's (C.) agonising monologue in front of the court, when she was called to apologise for the murder of her husband Agamemnon (A.). The main site of action was a table and two benches, occasionally used to represent the court, the dinner table or a malleable place which facilitated scenes from her past. The role of C. was spread between eight women and two men. In this performance, we aimed to open up the universal notions of love, betrayal, faith, revenge and catharsis and present their feminine and masculine aspects.
