RITE OF PASSAGE ©
by Nikos Dionysios
In this story, an out of work Actor rehearses for an upcoming audition. As he follows a poetic umbilical cord of Theatre, the Actor metamorphoses into heroes from different ages.
He becomes “Man through history”. Layer upon layer is shed as he delves into his secret side. He balances between Hero and Anti-Hero, Hero and Actor, Actor and Man, and walks a fine line in search of his original nature. In what appears to be self-analysis, there is a sense of the interview and audition, yet on another level, of interrogation. After taking off all the masks, the journey comes to an end. The hero is now Man and faces the Mystery of his existence. Is he now ready for the audition?
