In LESSEN TO THE FOURTH (Reduction⁴), five young people from Greece deal with their own biographies and with the crisis-ridden conditions that determine their lives in their homeland. The play addresses the disappearance of fixed values and the permanent disruption of human relationships against the backdrop of a steadily worsening overall social crisis, which has experienced one of its recent peaks in Greece. LESSEN TO THE FOURTH questions the relevance of system-shaping constants such as family, fatherland and religion, which still seem largely unassailable in Greece. The current acceptance of these values by the individual is called into question, occasionally with an ironic distance, but always with an undercurrent of intensity, as the individual attempts to orient himself in a disintegrating social coordinate system.
