Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contribution


The aim of this paper is to discuss selected aspects of Michael Marmarinos’ 2007 staging of the Greek novel Dying as a country, written by Dimitris Dimitriadis in 1978. In the process of the analysis, apart from presenting the novel and the performance in brief, I firstly reflect briefly on contemporary theatrical adaptations of literary works in Greece and elsewhere; and secondly I focus on the representation of the theme of displacement in this particular play, in situated time and space, and through the employment of creative means, mainly external to the literary prototype. Overall, the performance is approached as a composition of chronotopes, in which various forms of displacement tackled in the novel are both grounded and further contextualized.
