OPEN HOUSE ATHENS DAY

OPEN HOUSE ATHENS DAY

Saturday the 6th April 2019, 14.00-18.00

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

The Open House is one of the most important international institutions for the promotion of architecture. The idea began in London in 1992 and has been spread to many cities around the world. Open House action invites the general public to explore and understand the value of architecture. Each year for two days, public and private buildings open their doors to the public, free of charge and the city turns into a large museum, displaying its own buildings and architecture. The 6th OPEN HOUSE Athens is scheduled for the weekend 6-7 April 2019 with many parallel events that will accompany the main program.

Organized by: Open House Athens

“DUET RITUALS” SOFIA SARRI/ PETROS LAMBRIDIS Taste the Music series

Thursday 4th April 2019, 21.00

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

Sofia Sarri, vocals and Petros Lambridis, contrabass review and redefine pieces that give them inspiration and food for thought.

Approaching tracks from the baroque period, traditional and religious music to contemporary pop as well as compositions by Sofia Sarris adapted and reconstructed with an avant garde electroacoustic style, the duet plays on the verge of natural and electronic sound. They demean harmoniously and melodically, based only on the power of the voice and the bass frequencies. They create an atmosphere of initiation of the listener in the wonders of their imaginary ritual music.

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

The group, attempting  to transfer the “observer” Strinberg to the field of observation, uses in this work extracts from both personal letters of the author and other letters and texts. The fragments of these letters function as an acoustic environment creating a parallel space of obsessions and ghosts from the world of the author himself and not only. This particular “space” functions as a canvas and scenery of the central drama among the three main heroes of the work.

“We will live in loneliness in green meadows away from people”
(an extract from A. Strindberg’s letter to his wife)

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

 

After the 6 sold out performances the VASISTAS theatre group returns to judge and apologize

at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, on Wednesday the 6th March and Saturday the 9th March, 21.00hrs.

 

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»
