Aesop! He wants to tell us something...

This year we desided to travel the whole Greece with Aesop's Myths. The rescued myths are 584, from which we have chosen the ones we believe that can teach children the most.

That's how the title «Aesop! He wants to tell us something...» resulted. An actors' team is going to make alive the myths we have chosen, after talking to children about Aesop and his life. We are mentioning some of them: The cicada and the ant, the jack rabbit and the turtle, the chicken and the golden egg, the lion and the mouse, Marigo and her crock, the liar shepherd, etc.

Carmen Rouggeri



«Medea», the shocking tragedy of Euripides
after the great artistic success at this year's Epidauria, it is also coming to Olympus Festival

After the premiere in Epidauros, Euripides' «Medea», the eros' tragedy which turns into a terrible and wild hatred, is taking the stage on Saturday 10th August, 9.15 pm, at the ancient thetre of Dion, in the varied Olympus Festival.

The Evripides' tragedy, which was presented for the first time in 431 B.C., is dealing the last action of the passionate relationship of Jason and Medea, with Jason deciding to abandon her for someone else's eyes and the abandoned Medea getting her revenge the most cruel way: the murder of their children.

The dramatic tension that characterizes the play, the daring presentation of its two main characters και and the issue of the conflict between the two sexes elevate «Medea» in a modern drama, from which have derived inspiration many modern playwrightes. No doupt, it is about one of the most impressive and strong plays of the ancient Greek dramaturgy.

Spyros A. Evangelatos directs for second time this play, 12 years after his presentation of the «Amphi-Theatre» in Epidauros in 2001, with Leda Tasopoulou in the title role. Now Spyros A. Evangelatos returns to Euripides text under a particular condition: the play goes up with exclusive male distribution and Giorgos Kimoulis starring.

The certain thing is that the audience which is going to be at one of the tour stations of «Medea» will have the chance to watch a really unconventional play, in production of the Vasilakou Theatre.

The identity of the play:
Translation: K. C. Myris, Direction: Spyros A. Evagellatos, Producer: Kostas Ballas, Partnership: Theofanis G. Kirkinezos, Sets: Giorgos Patsas, Costumes: Giannis Metzikof, Music: Thanos Mikroutsikos, Music Instruction: Giannis Anastasopoulos, Assistant director: Christianna Mantzourani.

Starring: Giorgos Kimoulis, Odysseus Papaspiliopoulos, Tasos Noussias, Manos Vakoussis, Nikolas Papagiannis, Nikos Anastasopoulos, Dimitris Papanikolaou.
Leading-Dance: Tasos Alatzas, Nikos Anastasopoulos, Konstantinos Giannakopoulos, Haris Grigoropoulos, Dimitris Karaviotis, Stavros Karagiannis, Dimitris Karabetsis, Dimitris Moschos, Dimitris Mylonas, Dimitris Papanikolaou, Pantelis Flatsousis, Gerasimos Skafidas.

THANOS MIKROUTSIKOS
MANOLIS MITSIAS - GIANNIS KOTSIRAS – DIMITRIS MPASSIS

Thanos Mikroutsikos presents a program titled
"Always smiling and fooled".

The idea of this program had started with the folk songs, that the composer has occasionally written, but it has been widened with songs which have a political sign, so that the title of the program gain more meaningful content.

Folk songs and also political songs with folk sentiment in poetry and lyrics of Bertolt Brecht, Wolf Biermann, Alkis Alkaios, Manos Eleftheriou, Kostas Tripolitis, Kostas Lachas, Odysseus Ioannou, Lina Nikolakopoulou, Lakis Lazopoulos and Babis Tsikliropoulos.

The songs will be reimbursed by an excellent orchestra led by great Thimios Papadopoulos and 3 of the most important voices that our place currently disposes.
