The opening night performance of “(Princesses) A fairytale about Human Trafficking” took place on Friday, 16th March 2018 at 18.30 p.m. at the Cultural Centre of Kypseli offering free admission to the public. Varvara Daliani and Gerasimos Ioannou have created an educational drama, actively involving the audience, on human trafficking for sexual exploitation and the social role of women, mainly as members of vulnerable groups.

This play is an allegorical drama which deals with the story of four women victims of trafficking. As their stories mix with the fairytale world, the women are named after the points of the compass (East, North, West, South). All of them have to go through a test which may cost their lives. What will be the impact on these women’s lives?

Texts are based on true stories.

All performances are carried out with the kind support of KMOP (Family and Childcare Centre), the Athens Tourism and Development Agency (AEDA) S.A., the Municipality of Athens and the City of Athens Culture, Sports and Youth Organization (OPANDA).
