The Renaissance Choral Evensong services at St Paul’s are organised by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, the Athens Centre for Early Music, and St Paul’s Anglican Church.

The choir Cappella Sancti Pauli, under the direction of Iason Marmaras, sing a series of Choral Evensong services that aim to revive the musical and liturgical practice at Cathedrals and Chapels during the Renaissance, but also the experience that musicians had of this music at those times, looking at the music as a functional part of the liturgy, rather than as a building-block for concerts.

“The Ecclesiastes” ANTONIS ANTONOPOULOS & LOWTRONIK

Thursday 7th Feburary, Friday 8th February and Saturday 9th February  2019, 21.00

at St Paul’s Anglican Church, 27 Filellinon street, Syntagma, Athens

“Repentance of vanity”, Ecclesiastes said, “vanity of vanity, everything vain”.

After performances in BIOS, the Ecclesiastes, directed by Antonis Antonopoulos will be performed at St. Paul’s Anglican Church for only 3 performances.
An artistic choreography for the Old Testament archetypal text. A chamber opera for the futility of human nature.

The weather you mourn and the time you dance.

The performance tells the story of Ecclesiastes with music and dance terms. Lowtronik composes the electronic sound landscape on stage, and Antonis Antonopoulos directs the course of man from his primitive and animal payment in the quest for his divine substance. Through the Twelve Chapters of Ecclesiastes, this binary orchestra explores the boundaries between musical narration and representation.

Organized by: Antonis Antonopoulos

ENTRANCE BY TICKETS 12 and 8 Euros

Apologies 4 & 5 Blog

Argyro Chioti/VASISTAS theatre group: Apologies 4&5 by Efthimis Filippou

Argyro Chioti/VASISTAS theatre group

 Apologies 4&5  
by Efthimis Filippou

 

Once again, Argyro Chioti will be bringing her theatre group VASISTAS, Apologies 4&5 by Efthimis Filippou, for a few performances, at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, from 28th January until 18th February.

 

One judge. An undefined metaphysical leading figure who borrows elements from a school examiner a police investigator and a psychoanalyst.
  Two examinees: A woman and a man of the same age. In the middle stage of their lives. They voluntarily become subjects examined either for social inclusion or exclusion. In an empty space and an undefined time, they review all the turning points that determined their lives until now. It is a moment of redefining and reviewing their past. A moment of reckoning with their memory.

The basic demand: who will achieve admission to the women’s choir – ultimate witness and judge of the trial – who sings the same polyphonic song, again and again, throughout the entire performance.

The theatre play of Efthimis Filippou is a lyrical and poetic text which attempts to wander about the internal geography of two people. A precipitation in the details that compose their lives.


The women’s choir was created based on inspirations by the work of the artist Christina Calbari, Aleksandra Waliszewska and the polyphonic group A Filetta.

 
«
If swimming gives you pleasure, may you never dive again into clear blue waters.

If you sleep soundly at night may your pillow turn to stone and your sheet to steel.

If you do not tell the truth here tonight, then you are not worthy of dancing, not even for a minute and you’ll stand over there alone till you die»
