„The Republic of Baklava” is a theatrical pseudo-documentary inspired by the historical events of the 1821 Greek War of Independence, but set in our modern, digitally-connected, world. Its theme is two young people’s attempt to free themselves from the weight of age-old stereotypes of hostility and invent a new identity for themselves. A group of "researchers" are invited on stage to reconstruct the history of the tiny nation, its birth, conflicts, and heritage. Based on a series of fictional, surreal, and comic situations, the show explores issues of identity and political organization through the filter of the present day.
