Karagiozis Project

How can we think about the impacts of our choices?

This gallery show and installation resulted from a research collaboration with a Greek shadow puppeteer, Tasos Konstas, at TAF Gallery in Athens, Nov 2015.

We looked into how traditional Greek shadow puppetry relates to democracy today. The hero, Karagiozis, lived through a scenario chosen by the audience. The audience went through several methods of voting before seeing the results of their choice in the performance.

See a 5-min documentary of the project, shot and edited by Erato Tzavara.
