Exiles on Stage

The Modern Pontic Theater in Greece

Greek Pontian playwrights produced a unique refugee theater after they arrived in Greece in 1922. Obsessed with the lost homeland, they use nostalgia to evoke the phenomenon of virtual space on stage. This obsession makes them favor the Pontian dialect, as well as heroes who appear as liminal figures. Their plots show how individuals are reincorporated into society, reinforcing the continuity of the Greek Pontian community. They turn their back on mainstream Greece in order to portray Greek Pontians, a minority in real life but a majority on stage.
