Our suggestions for theater, concerts, exhibitions, events that you can enjoy in the city, on the weekend of August 12-13
- Ekavi, directed by Ios Voulgarakis at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus
THE “Hecuba”, the emblematic work of Euripides, is presented, at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, directed by Ios Voulgarakis, with Eleni Kokkidou in the title role. Twenty-four centuries later, Euripides’ timeless work is as relevant as ever. Images of wars, images of unbearable violence and heartbreak from every part of the world reach our screens every day. The absurdity of war seems to concern only those who live it, for everyone else it is limited to a dry, virtual and harmless information. It is buried among a multitude of news, cut off from the experience of mourning. We are thus familiar with the image and information of violence, we are trained in death, but we have not learned to mourn.
Friday 11 and Saturday 12/8, 21:00
Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, Archaeological Site of Asclepius, Epidaurus
- Stamatis Kraunakis at the Small Theater of Ancient Epidaurus
THE Stamatis Kraunakis, a very special chapter of modern Greek music, will take us on a journey to its tender, heartbreaking, loving side for a magical evening in Mikri Epidaurus, on Saturday August 12. Official guest Lydia Fotopoulou. He has prepared a long journey through his love songs over the decades; songs that, as the composer himself says, “were hanging out in the company of Greeks in solitude, gatherings, private parties, from the very well-known to some that endured in the shadows to reveal themselves in this theater of assemblies and sacrifices”.
