The Hellenic Centre is a vibrant cultural organisation founded in 1994 as a charity, with the aims of providing a focus for the Hellenic community, promoting an awareness of Hellenic culture in the UK and nurturing the unique relationship between Britain and the Hellenic world. The Centre offers a rich programme of lectures, exhibitions, concerts, social events and Greek language courses.
The Centre's elegant building dates from the early 1900s and has been sympathetically refurbished to provide a number of meeting and exhibition rooms, the most impressive of which is the Great Hall. The location and its facilities make it also an attractive venue for outside individuals and organisations to hold their events. The Centre is off Marylebone High Street in central London and is easily accessible.
The Hellenic Centre is run by a full-time director and her administrative staff, overseen by the Trustees and their Executive Board.
Director: Agatha Kalisperas
Monday 7 & Tuesday 8 November 2016
The Hellenic Centre is proud to present Katerina for three unique performances. Katerina, the new play adapted for the stage and directed by Yorgos Nanouris based on “The Book of Katerina”, by Auguste Corteau, has touched, moved and shaken a growing audience already counting more than 25,000 people, winning critical acclaim.
Starring Lena Papaligoura in the leading role, with live musical support by Lolec, Katerina presents the true story of Corteau’s bipolar mother. Right after committing suicide, Katerina embarks on a narrative of her cursed and condemned life, marked by her constant struggle with bipolar disorder. A life of medical treatments and suicide attempts, revolving around her husband, her son and his homosexuality, filled with screams, love, hate, humour, suffering, self-sarcasm, affection. A chaotic existence where the heroine, in her struggle to stay on the surface, grabs the lifeline offered by those closest to her and sinks them with her in the abyss of her illness.
Based on “The Book of Katerina” by Auguste Corteau
Conception, stage adaptation and direction: Yorgos Nanouris
