Drama | Physical Theatre

Home is a devised multidisciplinary performance inspired by Euripides’ Medea. 

The world of ‘Home’ is a poetic landscape exploring the feelings of suppression, desire, love, betrayal and revenge. 

The piece shifts between the existential metaphors of Medea’s actions and the mirroring of the current political reality, creating a dark, provocative, and humorous commentary on our contemporary lives. 

Created in collaboration with Yorgos’ new ensemble of international artists Despina Sidiropoulou & Tatiana Spivakova.

Directed by Yorgos Karamalegos (formerly of Tmesis Theatre & Physical Fest) 
A co-production with Hope Street Ltd & Physical Lab

Company

Yorgos was born in Athens, Greece, where he was trained as an actor at "Arhi" Drama School of Nelli Karra, and worked in theatre, film and television.

In 2001 he moved to London and trained with Philippe Gaulier and members of Complicite. 

In 2003 he found himself in Liverpool to join Hope Street Physical Theatre Programme, and then he founded Tmesis Theatre company and Physical Fest (International Physical Theatre Festival) with Elinor Randle. 

Tmesis collaborated with some world-class artists, such as Malou Airaudo (Pina Bausch Tanztheater), Tanya Khabarova (Derevo), Yoshi Oida, Lorna Marshall, Gennadi Bogdanov, Fin Walker, members of Complicite, and Nigel Charnock. 

All the repertoire he created with Tmesis has toured nationally and internationally, to critical acclaim. 

Physical Fest is the only festival of its kind in Europe that specialises solely in physical theatre, attracting participants and artists locally, nationally and internationally. 

In 2012 he founded Physical Lab, an international laboratory for performance that is running regularly in London, across the UK and internationally. 

A year later he founded Pleasure Lab, an embodiment and meditation laboratory that opens the work to people from non-performing backgrounds. 

Yorgos's teaching resume includes collaborations with world class institues such as LAMDA, RADA, Drama Centre, and The Actors Centre in London, as well as workshops and residencies nationally and internationally.
