“Orest” a theatrical performance presented by El Medina Group for Performing and digital Arts and the Greek culture foundation in Alexandria:

A poem of Yannis Ritsos which is a dialogue with the ancient legend giving Orest impersonal qualities in line with the contemporary image of non-event. Thus “Orest” shows as a young man full of hesitation and questions of modern times.
