Today, death and the notion of ending cross each other permanently on a day to day basis, without anyone stopping or noticing it attentively. Death is like melted ice cream on the sidewalk, you can’t taste it and when you walk beside it you don’t want to lick it. “Je meurs comme un pays” (1978), a text by Greek contemporary playwright Dimítris Dimitriádis, speaks of death in a territory devastated by civil war, political corruption and by the subversion of morality, a tragic figuration in a kind of mash-up of all perversions and subversions.
