Sappho... In 9 Fragments

Written by 

 

At the origin, Sappho… in 9 fragments was written and played by Jane Montgomery Griffiths, this play is directed today by Jessica Ruano (http://jessicaruano.com/), the role of Sappho and Atthis being interpreted by Victoria Grove.

The performance of Grove is impressive because she is sometimes hanging from threads, she keeps us in suspense in the darkness of the theatre's room with this intense light on her which prevented us any distraction, and sometimes she alternates between the characters, passing from Sappho to Atthis, or she makes us feel the presence of the other character, invisible but so much there.

Sappho… in 9 fragments is currently played at The Rose, Bankside in London until June 2 before going in tour in Canada. For more informations on the tour of this play, see the site: http://sappho9fragments.com/
