Our Theatre Company
Praxis (in Greek ‘Πράξις’, meaning ‘The Act’) was established in 2013, with a vision to promote contemporary Greek theatre. Ancient Greece was the birthplace of theatre.

In fact, modern Greece has its own theatrical legacy. Praxis is proud to be the first team to introduce contemporary GreSplinters_flyer_ek theatre in its original language with English surtitles to the Oxford audience. Since our début, in May 2014, we have been annually presenting the newest contemporary Greek theatre pieces with great success.
This year’s production, ‘Splinters’, is a brand-new work by Nina Rapi, firstly performed in Athens in January 2018. Praxis, under the direction of Anastasia Revi, are translating ‘Splinters’ and presenting it for the very first time in the UK. An ensemble of seven short stories, ‘Splinters’ is a play about human relationships. 7 dialogues among friends, lovers, family members or internal, self-dialogues, that bring to light the never-ending quest for happiness, freedom, self-conscience and identity through our day to day interactions. The struggle between solitude and co-existence, between the self and the other.
