The theatrical performance "My Mother’s Sin" by Georgios Vizyenos at Columbia University for a second time Under the auspices of the Consulate General of Greece in New York
The theatrical performance "My Mother’s Sin" by Georgios Vizyenos completed its second tour of universities in the United States. The last performance was given on October 29th, at Columbia University in New York (Program in Hellenic Studies), under the auspices of the Consulate General of Greece in New York.
Following last year's successful tour across universities in the U.S., (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the city of Tampa, FL), starring Rena Kypriotou, director Danae Roussou returns to reveal Vizyenos’ cathartic confession to an even wider audience.
As she explains, "it is imperative to engage with the classical literature form of the global dramaturgy. We ought to turn towards this direction, which will let us identify with our inner selves. It is the path humanity should take in order to find maturity".
My Mother’s Sin, an autobiographical short story written by Vizyenos in 1883, speaks of forgiveness, guilt, and atonement in a confessional manner. This year’s tour was also placed under the auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
