One of the main goals of a society that is currently built on and formed through the abundance of information, the easy access to the sources and the "security" of online media (which, however, does not imply validity), should be critical thought and, by extension, critical discourse. Our country’s vivid theatrical landscape - the numerous trends, the opposing forces, the hundreds of performances that are staged, the efforts of a new generation to find its way and of the older ones to stand and create new, but unfortunately not better, conditions – demands careful observation, critical approach and the evaluation of artistic activity.
GPP records, studies, researches and develops a theoretical discourse around dramaturgy and the theatrical act. With the introduction of a column of theatre criticism in the website, GPP’s aim is to contribute even more dynamically to the scientific and artistic discussion around the genres, the trends, the artists, their work, and the performances.
A scientific critical discourse articulated by a group of authoritative theoreticians and critics; people armed with the necessary conceptual and methodological tools for the analysis of a performance, with high aesthetic and evaluative criteria, and above all with love for the art and the people of the theater. Ioanna Blatsou, Savas Patsalidis, Giorgos Pefanis, Dimitris Tsatsoulis and Eirini Moundraki, as well as Maria Karananou as regards children’s theatre, will author the reviews on GPP, aiming at a dynamic discussion that will promote and reinforce theatre and its onstage presentation. Theatre is a product of democracy, free thinking, and critical outlook of things. GPP supports unfettered thought. Its criticism, authoritative, independent and respectful, comes to serve it.
