The famous British director Peter Brooke and the Greek actress Kathryn Hunter are arriving in Athens for the festival “Theatre without borders.” The actress will act on the stage of “Dimitris Horn” theatre on May 15, 16, and 17th with the play “The Monkey” by Kafka, which right now is played in Young Vic in London. Few days earlier, on May 9, 10, and 11 Peter Brooke will present his first English version of “Fragments” by Samuel Becket.

Kathryn Hunter was born during 1956 in New York in a family of Greeks with the name Kathryn Hadjipatera. As a child, she moves to England where she graduates from RADA – Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. In 1990 she was given the theatrical award, which holds the name of Sir Lawrence Olivier, for her role in Frederick Durrenmatt’s play “A Visit” as a millionaire.

Hunter is the first professional British actress, who played the role of King Lear in Shakespeare’s play. Her portfolio also includes roles like Shakespeare’s Richard III (on the photo) and Harry Potter’s neighbor – Miss Arabella Figg, in the fifth film about the famous hero. Kathryn Hunter directs as well. Right now she is directing the Shakespearean play “Othello,” in which the role of Roderigo is played by her husband Marsello Magni.
