As in C.orydallos. As in C.osmos

A group of people – categorized and without identity – are stacked in a place. Through personal narratives-monologues they become a team, converse, and also fare in parallel, discovering their common links. At times as Chorus and others as Messengers of past events, they tell a dark tale-an allegory about Man and the Cosmos.

- C - started as an attempt to de-demonize HIV-positivity, with the help of a group of inmates in Corydallos prison, whose disease cut them off from all the others. The aim was to remove the additional stigmatization that their disease imposed on them – already being impaired by the stigma they bear as prisoners. The challenge was to disentangle "reality" from suffocating phobias, through a play – theatrical project that would involve personal stories, in order to reveal their common elements. However, the illness was only the guise in a series of arbitrary categorisations of these people who were classified in the dark part of society.
