Delirium Tremens is a quest for a new optimism in response to the anxieties of a troubled new century. With humor and gestural poetry, this solo questions individualism and narcissism by using clichés from the movie industry.
« Cultural exoticism, Hollywood images, and the incoherence that seems to govern our actions, dreams and thoughts, become here raw material. Letting ourselves be touched by who we are without judgment (?) and share what resonates inside with others. In this solo one can see video images on TV, cinema characters realizing tests of madness, explosive energy, semi-improvised monologues, and sensitive dances.» [D. T.]
The images on the TV monitors are the only elements of the stage design. A mix of intimate scenes and the omnipresent mass media.

Dimitrios Tsiapkinis received a grant from the Greek ministry of Culture for the production of Delirium Tremens, with his newly established company The Lotus Fracture.
