ATHENS BY NIGHT  is an evening of theater composed of the two Shakespeare plays happening in the Old Athens, Timon of Athens followed by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It is an esthetical travel, where the actors navigate in the multiple layers of theater in theater and dreams within dreams, questioning the place of individual human beings in their social environment and blurring the line between theater and reality. Athens is a particularly  ambivalent setting, potentially secret and extravagant, between the palaces and the forest, old stone and nature, the reality and the dreams, mysteries, love, human singularity.

These plays question Charles Chemin and his very European artistic team (from Romania, France, United Kingdom, Italy) on how to unite and give a poetical and human meaning to our interactions. Poetical in the sense that it is based on the vibes of the human senses, the depth of verses and counterpoints to reality.
