In a makeshift room, decorated in a haphazard DIY fashion, a performer puts his notably awkwardly shaped body under the magnifying glass. Magic comes from the mundane and references to cabaret, vaudeville and slapstick abound.

Greek artist Euripides Laskaridis is preoccupied by ideas about transformation and ridicule. By testing the limits of our acceptance of the incongruous and unfamiliar, performer and audience alike will experience a moment of transcendence.

Biography

Euripides Laskaridis is a stage director, short-filmmaker and performer. In his artistic exploration he grapples with ridicule and transformation. He founded the Osmosis Theatre Company in 2009 and has since presented their work in various settings in Greece, such as at the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, the Greek National Theatre, the Embros Theatre Occupation, the Ancient Venue of Hephaestia and others. As Osmosis grew in meta-crisis Greece the need for the company to reach out and connect cross-border became imperative.

Euripides was a Best Actor nominee at the 1998 Greek Theatre Critics Association Awards and has been performing since 1995. After he moved to New York for his MFA in Theatre Directing in 2000, he began directing short films and theatre.

Outside Greece, his work has been hosted at international festivals and venues such as the New York City Fringe, Judson Church, Dixon Place, and the 11th Biennale of European & Mediterranean Artists. His first short film, won the 2007 Jumping Frames Award in Hong Kong, and garnered a Cinedans special mention that same year in Amsterdam. His second short film was officially selected at the 14th Thessaloniki International Documentary Festival in 2012.
