Abstract
This article reflects upon a personal experience deriving from the juxtaposition of the Attis Theatre workshop that took place in Athens, in July 2015, and its socio-political context, namely the events surrounding the country’s vote on the new deal with its creditors and the mass migration from countries of west and central Asia to Greece. Focusing on the journeys between ‘outside’ and ‘inside’, the ­article specifically explores different temporalities, how they emerged, how they corresponded with each other, how they clashed. Viewing the strategy developed by the workshop and its wider impact as a metaphor for an ethical stance trespassing the limits of its aesthetic context, I outline the possibility of theatre as a timespace that changes everything.
