In a bunker on a Greek island, a conscript keeps watch. Alone. His mission: to guard the border for 72 hours. Three days later, no one shows up: no replacement, no pick-up, no one. What to do?
Hyperion is a performance inspired by Friedrich Hölderlin's early romantic novel, Hyperion or the Hermit in Greece (1797). Written in an age of revolutions and seismic changes in Europe, the novel traced the journey of a young Greek dreaming of national independence and freedom from foreign rule.
