Xanthi is a theatre performance which allegorically approaches the three levels of consciousness (waking, dreaming and deep sleep) and what we humans have christened reality. The performance is based on the life events of an ordinary woman, called Xanthi, who was born in 1934 in the island of Chios, Greece, and is supposed to be the performer’s grandmother. Living in a crucial period of history, both nationally and internationally, her turbulent life brings on stage a new creature, which continuously transforms. Inspired by the artistic movement of surrealism, the yoga sutras, as well as influenced from personal and artistic references and the performer’s family tree, the performance is not only artistic research, but also a healing process.

Giovanna Michaliadi Sarti started working on this project in 2018, researching how a performer can be an independent creator and experimenting with the use of soap bubble and circus elements in theatre.

Giovanna Michaliadi Sarti is member and performer of the Multiactive Team - Fabrica Athens Theatre Group since 2015. Giovanna has worked with performing arts since 2011 beginning with Hoop-dance and then training in circus techniques such as stilts, unicycle, juggling, walking globe and fire juggling since 2013. She has taken part in festivals in Greece and abroad as a Hula Hoop Performer, a Fire Performer and as a member of the performing duet Mr and Mrs Bubble. In addition, she cooperates with the Greek group of Clowns Without Borders Sweden. She is a Nada Yoga Teacher trained in the Nada Yoga School in Rishikesh, India. As a performer she has taken part in site specific performances, in shorts of Studio Matejka and in the performances 7 Deadly Sins and Faith by Fabrica Athens Theatre Group.
