A Greek Tragedy

(director, devisor)

tragedy / when the falafel’s gone, and she can’t go on /

it’s tragedy / when her tzatziki’s done and there’s no more fun /

it’s hard to share / with no one beside her /

she’s deep in despair /


In the disquietingly familiar chewing and swallowing sounds that necessarily accompany the consumption of a souvlaki, A Greek Tragedy finds the hilarity in the tragic, inviting the kind of intimate connection that can only be made over food.
