“The Triumph of Love” By Pierre de Marivaux

Directed by Konstantinos Maravelias

“For my eyes I answer nothing. Them can tell you that I love you, but you can not accuse me for saying this to you.”

Written in 1732, this comedy by Marivaux takes place in a non-specific time period during the Greek antiquity.

In a male-dominated society, a young princess armed with the “weapon” of love wants to conquer the heart of a man by surrendering to him, both, her heart and her throne. The characters of the play adjust their clothes, behaviours and sexes in order to either reach their objective, or to protect themselves from their own self. By disguising and manufacturing masks they aim to be socially acceptable.

But what is the amount of freedom you get behind a mask?

Princess Leonidia disguises herself to a man as her will is to be near Agis who lives isolated from a young age, in the garden of philosopher Ermocrates. Ermocrates, along with his sister Leondini, raised Agis in such a way as to hate Leonidia and consider her family and consequently her, the person responsible for the suffering of his family, as Agis is the legitimate successor of the throne she possesses. Leonidia, along with Korina -her servant- sets up erotic traps for Agis “guardians” in order to restore justice and conquer his heart.
