The Michael Cacoyannis Foundation presents the leading play by Alfred Gehri “Sixth Floor”, for a limited number of performances. The musical play, more well-timed than ever before, is being presented to the Greek theatrical scene following twenty years with the signature of the renowned actress Anna Panagiotopoulou, the music compositions by Stamatis Kraounakis in lyrics by Lina Nikolakopoulou. The performance is directed by Marianna Kalmpari, while leading roles feature Tzina Alimonou, Emilia Vasilakaki, Nektaria Yannoudaki, Evgenia Dimitropoulou, Diamantis Karanastasis and Yannis Stefopoulos.
The legendary, now on, performance attempts a contemporary stage approach of the famous music play, which is identified by a clear-cut musical style. During the financial crisis in the 30s, a group of people –the entire society on a small scale- co-exists on the sixth floor of a Parisian block of apartments. Using comedy as the axis that characterizes the successful adaptation by Anna Panagiotopoulou, we follow the lives of those people unfolding through their romances, conflicts, passions and mainly their dreams. Small or big dreams, dreams which offer them the courage to handle the difficulties of their routine. But through the progress of the play, they will realize that beyond dreams –which unfortunately rarely come true- there is love, fellowship, solidarity, the sense that we remain united against every difficulty. And only through this feeling can we eventually be true winners in the game of life.
In an abstract and at the same time very much effective set, with live music and impressive choreographies, with some of the most popular songs of Lina Nikolakopoulou and Stamatis Kraounakis, transform the stage into a spectacular music performance, offering to the audience a joyful and optimistic two-hour experience.
