On Xerxes’ Throne

Στο Θρόνο του Ξέρξη

A dystopian workplace at the Perama shipyards. A longstanding ban on physical contact has turned human interactions into otherworldly simulations. The suppression of touch among the workers has alienated their communication, transforming the boatyard into a charged landscape of alienation and repressed sensuality beyond stereotypical heteronormative desires.
