Sisyphus Distressing is a music theatre performance devised by Gregory Emfietzis for the Metapraxis Ensemble. On 7 November, Albert Camus's birthday anniversary, seven musicians bring to life seven pieces creating a narrative based on the myth of Sisyphus.

An avant-garde sonic environment full of experimental, theatrical and visual elements intersect with the absurd narration of the well-known myth (as it was seen by Camus). This is the second part of a music theatre trilogy, based on Camus's notion of revolt: «the attitude of heroic defiance or resistance to whatever oppresses human beings».
The 6th of the Metapraxis projects (kindly supported by the Hinrichsen Foundation) consists of 7 pieces by Emfietzis: 'Gluttony', a composition (developed with the support of the Arts Council Engalnd) for flute, percussion and our special bottlephone, is premmiered alongside another 6 (solo & chamber) works for voice, violin, cello and piano.
Performing and working backstage with Greg are: Neil Georgeson (piano), Wai-Nok Angela Hui (perc), Ilze Ikse (flute), Loukia Loulaki (cello), Myrto Loulaki (voice), Rebecca Raimondi (violin), and Edd Cross (video producer), Alex Lesseps (videographer), Matt London (audio engineer), Damian Posse (co-producer/videographer), Mayra Stergiou (director).
