Greek Theatre in the Years of Depression (2009-2012)





Blitz,  Guns, Guns, Guns
At the time the economic slump began (2009), Greek theatre was experiencing the most explosive period of its history. Approximately 120 theatre venues all over the city of Athens, and particularly in heavily populated squalid locales, accommodated about 450 new productions. Close to 200 professional companies applied that year for state funding. The Actors’ Equity had reached a record high membership of 2500.
