In November, Parabases - SNFCC Reader's Theater - continue at the Lighthouse, staged by a leading Greek theater director of the new generation, Dimitris Karantzas.

Under his direction, Parabases revisit pioneering voices in literature, theater and poetry. Women writers and poets who left their mark through their trailblazing work, iconic female fictional and dramatic characters come alive in the Parabases literary salon.

«...and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down Jo me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.»

Molly Bloom's soliloquy

In November's Parabases, the great theater actress Reni Pittaki performs what is perhaps the most important interior monologue in the history of literature, Molly Bloom's soliloquy from James Joyce's Ulysses.

A landmark of modernist literature, Ulysses recounts the adventures of modern-day Odysseus, Leopold Bloom, on 16 June 1904 in Dublin.

In the last «rhapsody» (Episode 18: Penelope), Joyce's Penelope, Molly Bloom, considers her various admirers, revisits the day's events, reminisces about her childhood days and failed stage career, in eight long paragraphs without any punctuation.

The obscenity of Ulysses is one of the main reasons why the novel was originally banned in several countries.
