Evripidis & His Tragedies – Futile Games in Space and Time
Evripidis and His Tragedies is Evripidis Sabatis. The “Tragedies” are the devastating, confessional, self-sarcastic, darkly humorous songs that draw on his classical piano training, queer sensibility and storytelling skills to examine and own up to the vicissitudes of life. Evripidis’ pop inclinations take us for a bumpy, dancey ride across the fine line between tragedy and joie de vivre. Futile Games in Space and Time is an album released on March 14, 2016. It has been a long and winding road for the songs in it to be conceived, structured, rehearsed, performed, mixed and presented here neatly one next to another. A road full of U-turns, dead ends, bridges and tunnels, with a starting and finishing point in Barcelona, that nevertheless went back and forth several times between Madrid, Berlin, London, New York and of course Athens.
