"Joan of Arc "

Directed by Violet Louise

Joan of Arc 1

MICHAEL CACOYANNIS FOUNDATION - ATHENS

(Black Box)

 

03 - 26 February 2017
21:00

 

 

Violet Louise and her creative group revisit the trial of Joan of Arc and, using music, sound and visuals, create a modern version of the story of the young peasant girl from Domrémy who saved France from the British invasion during the early 15th century.

Who was Joan of Arc after all? A Witch or a Saint? A creature blessed with unusual skills or the scapegoat for a system which betrayed her once she had fulfilled her purpose? Was she a dreamer or an ambitious intelligent woman who knew that in order for history to be written she must involve herself in the world of men rather than domestic duties.

Joan of Arc represents the new force colliding with the old but still powerful institutions such as the Catholic Church, the Inquisition, and the Feudal System. This is why her obliteration from the system was unavoidable. Her prosecutors were not any more or less ethical or scheming than the next person. They were simply defending the powers that be. It was the historical circumstances which helped Joan to realize her vision. The idea was born of a nation which would instigate the passing from the Medieval Period into a new world.

It is this idea which was her most effective weapon in politics and on the battle field. When both sides believe in the same God (English and French during the Hundred Years’ War), we understand what is means to raise the pennon and ask that the opponent surrender as it is God’s wish.

Joan was the kind of person who did not want to belong to any group; the kind of person who walks alone and with such force that in the end they burn themselves out, literally and metaphorically. The path of such people is preordained. If Joan of Arc was to return to this world once again, the exact same thing would happen - as Bernard Shaw wrote in his own theatrical version of the tale – she would be burned at the stake.

The world is not ready to accept saints or ideologists. It is only these people, though, who have the power to change the flow of history. Let us consider which kind of imagery the word Medieval brings to each of us. And if the cruelty of that time labels it (wrongly, as proven) a dark period for humanity, what can be said about the “refined and civilized” 21st century? Maybe that it is an even more bloodthirsty system which drowns any type of human freedom and wipes out anyone or anything which is considered a threat to social peace and order?

Multimedia design, programming, sound design & live sound mix for the performance :

"Don Juan "

Directed by Michael Marmarinos

Don Juan

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE - ATHENS

(Main Stage)

 

25 JANUARY - 19 February 2017
20:30

 

The legend of Don Juan revisited in a production that takes Molière’s play as its core and adds fragments from other versions of the tale.

 

 

Molière’s Don Juan, a masterpiece of the classical repertoire but also a work that stirred up more controversy in its time than any other, staged in a contemporary version by Michael Marmarinos which integrates fragments from other Don Juans and exists in the grey zone between two idioms: the cinematic and the theatrical.

Don Juan, the eternal heart-breaker who gives his passions free rein, the lover driven by his relentless desire to sample life’s every joy, the sceptic who engages unhesitatingly with the metaphysical, has always enraged conservative societies by calling their norms into question, shining a spotlight on their hypocrisy, and delighting in breaking their taboos. Don Juan exposes his enemies but also himself with his irresistible charm, his aura of limitless freedom and his acid wit.

A hero/legend and a play/enigma that poses big questions about human nature and the nature of desire, fear and freedom. “Don Juan is a landmark character on the map of human desires and fears; as real as an after-image, as imaginary as a poem”, Marmarinos notes. “A notional, fictitious rebellion against everything that masquerades as stability, packed with victims both real and imaginary”.

 


At weekends 4-5, 11-12 and 18-19 February 2017 with English surtitles (Surtitles translation: Memi Katsoni).

"It's Time To Open The Black Boxes! "

a project by Danae Stratou

BlackBoxesOnTourFrance1

La Gaîté lyrique - Paris

(France)

 

11 - 29 January 2017


Exhibition, Lanceurs D'Alert.
Danae Stratou participation with the project:
It’s Time to Open the Black Boxes!.
Curator: Marie Lechner. La Gaite Lyrique, Paris, France, (2017). 

 

Premiered at Zoumboulakis Galleries, Athens, Greece (2012) 

 

It’s time to open the Black Boxes! is a participatory art project initiated by artist Danae Stratou. In these times of multiple crises shaking the world to its core, it is easy to fall into a fear-induced state of paralysis. This artistic project is a reaction to that perspective. Danae Stratou invites you to participate actively in the project by suggesting a word.

 

Installation description

The installation comprises 100 black boxes geometrically positioned on the floor. *The boxes were custom made out of thick black aluminium sheet metal. The boxes’ lids are open at an angle. Inside each box a black screen is positioned at a 450 degree angle in relation to the floor. The boxes are surfaced with translucent mirrors, thus creating the illusion that they are filled to the rim with a liquid substance and that the screens within them are submerged in polluted water akin to an oil slick.

Upon entering the exhibition space the viewer is confronted by a mixture of sounds such as beeps, heart beats, explosions and flat-lines. As one approaches and walks through the installation it becomes apparent that the screens inside the boxes are displaying words and numbers. Each word appears for a few seconds before being replaced by either a countdown or a count-up (depending on the word). As the numbers race (down toward zero or up to a specially chosen limit), their pace, style and accompanying sounds resemble a ticking bomb. When the countdown, or count-up, reaches its climax, each box emits the sound of either an explosion or a flat-line. These sounds are designed so as to intensify the sensation of tension, crisis, and alarm.

(Austria)

 

08/09/2016 - 26/10/2016

 

Organised in the context of Globart Academy 2016,

Krems, Austria, (2016).

Curator: Heidmarie Dobner. Museumkrems.


Europa erlebt zurzeit eine politische Krise. Es ist allerdings nicht die Krise, vor der uns populistische Parlamentarier und demokratiefeindliche Demagogen warnen wollen. Krisenhaft ist vielmehr, dass sich die Angst schürenden und hetzenden Stimmen Gehör verschaffen. Krisenhaft ist, dass wir in die Falle eines engherzigen Reaktionismus tappen, der einfache Lösungen verspricht aber leider nur zu einer Verschärfung der Krise beiträgt. In Österreich stehen wir am 22. Mai vor einer Wahl, die die Stimmung maßgeblich in die eine oder andere Richtung lenken kann. Eine Wahl, die parlamentarisch eher Symbolcharakter hat, aber zivilgesellschaftlich den entscheidenden Impuls geben kann, damit wir uns als Gemeinschaft unserer Verantwortung in der Welt stellen oder nicht.

 

 

 

Bis dahin und über die Präsidentschaftswahl hinaus, unabhängig von ihrem Ausgang, müssen wir dieses Problem in die Öffentlichkeit tragen und darüber diskutieren. Die Installationskünstlerin Danae Stratou wagt in ihrer aktuellen Kunstinstallation „ It's Time to Open the Black Boxes “ diesen Versuch. Was beängstigt oder bedroht mich am meisten oder was muss am dringendsten bewahrt werden? Diese Frage stellt sie mit symmetrischer Dringlichkeit buchstäblich in den Raum. Dazu braucht es viele Personen, die sich an der Installation beteiligen, denn Stratous Werk ist keineswegs abstrakt sondern eine lebendige Reflektion des gesellschaftlichen Zeitgeistes.

"TROJAN WOMEN, PETRIFIED " - of Euripides

Directed by Violet Louise

theatres1en

MICHAEL CACOYANNIS FOUNDATION - ATHENS

(Hall: Theatre)

 

22 - 23 May 2016
20:30

 

Premiered at Archaeological Museum of Olympia (pediment hall),
within the framework of events for the Olympic Torch Lighting Ceremony

[ Wednesday, April 20, 2016 ]

 

An audiovisual on-stage narration based upon Euripides. The Trojan Women translated by Michael Cacoyannis. Direction-music: Louisa Kostoula (Violet Louise) Hecuba: Aglaia Pappa

The original "Trojan Women" project, written in 415 BC during the Peloponnesian War,it is often considered a commentary on the capture of the Aegean island of Melos and the subsequent slaughter and subjugation of its populace by the Athenians earlier that year. Euripides's play follows the fates of the women of Troy after their city has been sacked, their husbands killed, and as their remaining families are about to be taken away as slaves.

"Trojan Women" is best viewed as a war play rather than a tragedy. The play, essentially a lament for Troy and those who fell with it, presents the women as they are sent to their fates.The laments of these women for their fallen city, their deceased loved ones, and their dark futures can certainly provoke an emotional response, but the intention of the play is not to inspire pity and fear but to question the events of war.

The performance under the title "Trojan Women" is a multimedia narration of the greek playwright Euripides original tragedy Troades, seen through the unique translation of Michael Cacoyannis .This performance is based on sound, multimedia and three performers.

The composition and implementation are based upon a special sound design (use of quadraphonics, a zone of four speakers which are placed amongst the audience), and three actors. The visual material used includes specially processed shots of natural landscapes, images which float between the realistic and the imaginary which heighten the feelings of loss of space and time, the memories of the women who were driven down the road of slavery.

Sound Mix for the movie :

Ouzeri Tsitsanis - Manousos Manousakis

 

OYZERI TSITSANIS

Synopsis:
During World War II in Greece, under the submission of Germans, one Christian, Giorgos, falls in love with a Jewish, Estrea, something completely forbidden. Can they and their families overcome all the obstacles, along with racial discriminations and hardship? The story mainly takes place in an ouzeria, in which Tsitsanis works, one of the greatest Greek composer, librettist and singer in the 20th century.

The main theme of the film is the Holocaust of the vibrant, 500-year old Jewish community of Thessaloniki, during the brutal German occupation of Greece. In the Spring of 1943, they were betrayed by their complacent community leadership, and deported, non-resisting, to their doom in Poland. Two plot lines run parallel and intersect with this theme: A doomed love story and the early years of famous Rembetico music composer Vasilis Tsitsanis. In the small tavern where Tsitsanis' company performs, intermingle German officers, Greek collaborators, black marketeers, and undercover Resistance fighters. Young carpenter Yorgos, works there in the evenings. Yorgos is involved in the nascent Greek Resistance, as the operator of a radio transmitter. When Jewish girl Estrea is assigned to be his assistant, a passionate, forlorn love blooms.

A four week run at the Strehler, on the occasion of Expo 2015 for Odyssey, a version in modern Greek of Homer’s poem directed by Robert Wilson from the adaptation by the English poet Simon Armitage.

The play debuted in Athens for four months in 2012, the year in the Greek and European crisis, and in April 2013 played to full houses at the Piccolo. Its return to Milan coincides with a period of new questions and new considerations – both economical and non – on the future of Europe.
Wilson establishes original links between the ancient and the modern, putting a new spin on the eternal theme of the journey, and the return.

Matomenos Gamos

Michael Marmarinos - Rokuro Gensho Umewaka

Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus [ 24-25 July 2015 ] - 21:00


“From now on remember that the dead cast no shadow, nor do they open and close their eyes” - Plutarch

 

Michael Marmarinos stages Book 11 from Homer’s The Odyssey and Gensho Umewaka transforms
Odysseus’ descent into Hades in the manner of Noh theatre. The metaphysical poetry and austere minimalism of the theatrical language of Japan meet the epic poetry of Homer in a joint descent into the world of the dead. The elusiveness of the “other” world acquires tragic substance at the ancient theatre of Epidaurus in a performance under the aegis of the Greek Festival, in which the question of life after death becomes a crowning theatrical event.

Zoe Chatziantoniou

Filoktitis


Peiraios 260, Building H [ 12-13 July 2015 ] - 21:00

 

A composition based on the one-act play by Maurice Maeterlinck.

 

Deep in a forest a group of blind persons wait for their guide. When they realize he will never come, they take no action but instead abandon themselves to the mercy of a dark fate. Approaching blindness not as a bodily condition but as an ontological one, Zoe Hadjiantoniou and Dimitris Kamarotos compose a strange opera of sound and gesture that is inspired by Belgian Nobel-prize-winner Maurice Maeterlinck’s 1890 play, The Blind. Savina Yannatou and a Chorus of superb actors perform a playful metaphysical parable on the inertia of mortal beings “in the midst of an endless cosmos that is never inert,” in the words of Maeterlinck.

"TEXTILEN" By Maria Efstathiadi - Director : Victor Ardittis

 

Festival Athinon

 

metatopisi pros to erithro

Peiraios 260, Building H [ 6 July 2015 ] - [ 21:00 ]


Three generations of a bourgeois family in disintegration. Broken, hypocritical relationships allegorically reveal the means by which the threads of the history of modern Greek capitalist society are woven. Humorous children’s songs and disembodied voices comment on the guilt-ridden passions and latent violence that unfold on stage. Director Victor Ardittis approaches Maria Efstathiadis’ world by weaving together text, melody and movement to mount a tapestry of scenes depicting the course of the upper class in the 20th century. Until the young daughter burns it all down.

MICHAEL CACOYANNIS FOUNDATION - ATHENS

(Hall: Specially Configured Underground Parking)

 

20 - 21 - 22, May 2015
21:00

 

2nd Contemporary Theatre Festival
"French theatre  à la Grecque"

 

The French Institute of Greece and Michael Cacoyannis Foundation present :

Olivier Py "Theatres" performance

Actor, singer, director, writer, poet, Olivier Py is one of the most enlightened representatives of the french theatre and dramaturgy .Not hesitating to declare his Catholic faith and his homosexuality, Olivier Py, creates a dramatic universe based on a dense poetic language. Theatre, in Py’s universe is a church where the audience can find new meaning in a world devoid of values
Theatres is one of the first plays of Olivier Py with autobiographical elements. This text comprises of twelve chapters, like a personal diary. The first scene starts with an act of violnence. A young man is stubbed with a knife, on the road. As he dies, he remembers, the most crucial moments of his life, he recalls his wounds, those wounds that led him to the creative path of theatre and writing.
Olivier Py with french and algerian roots, speaks about violence from many different aspects: From the dark side of colonialism of the Algerian war to homophobia and street violence in the big cities and in families. Olivier Py tries to give some answers toy young people  and children, who live with no orientation in a world without ethics. Those young people could find new meaning in this world through creation, through theatre. Theatre brings catharsis. Theatre can heal the wounds
Theatres is a declaration against bloody power. Olivier Py’s statement in this theatrical play is about the side you choose to be with. Better be a victim than a victimizer, better to be tortured than be a torturer, even if you have to offer your wounds at the altar of stupidity and human brutality.

"The Song of the Dead Brother " - Mikis Theodorakis

Directed by Thanasis Papageorgiou

ToTragoudiTouNekrouAdelfou

BADMINTON THEATRE

(Central Stage)

 

March 18 - April 5

 

In 1962, Mikis Theodorakis composed a dramatic synthesis based on The "Dead Brother's Song" named "The Ballad of the Dead Brother" which referred to the Greek Civil War and the then oppressive political situation in Greece.

The second big show in which the Badminton Theatre celebrates 90 years of Mikis Theodorakis is The Song of the Dead Brother . One of the most emblematic works of the great Greek artist , takes the stage of Badminton in a renewed version , elaborated by the composer himself directed by Thanasis Papageorgiou .

"The Song of the Dead Brother " is a devout folk tragedy inspired by the civil strife that erupted after the national epic against fascism . Fifty years after the first presentation , Thanasis Papageorgiou grapples again with this classic work , paying tribute to the leading Greek composer . .

 

For the new , large production of the Theatre Badminton, Mikis Theodorakis has created a completely new version , attempting a conversation with this and adding an entire act . The first act deals with the dark period before and after the "Dekevriana" and composer incorporates 10 songs from " The Lyrics " with lyrics by Tasos Livaditis.

(pre-recorded & processed audio materials) and video projection.
Stella Gadedi (flute) - Yorgos Mouloudakis (guitar).
Sound design, sound synthesis & video by studio19st (multimedia team).
Two celebrated Greek virtuosos -- flutist Stella Gadedi and guitarist Yorgos Mouloudakis -- perform 'all-time classics' in a mood that is close to 'pop', as they pick out the profile of an imaginary city, made up of bits of other towns or cities, neighbourhoods or districts, people, times, moments, and sounds.

Works by Satie, Piazzolla, Stravinsky, Dyens, Ibert, Gossec, Hadjidakis and others, follow the composers' itineraries within their own towns in the manner that snatches of music accompany us within our real or imaginary 'cities'.

About the sound: the live performance of the musicians in combination with the daring sound design achieved by "studio19st" (multimedia team) give the listener a feeling of 'being there'. In between the pieces are the brash intrusions of city 1's urban soundscape: the cries of children playing in the square, cars whizzing by, people's voices heard from a light-well, hawkers in the Varvakios Market, whispering from the flat next door, a train rumbling into Theseion metro station...


[city 1] is available on CD from SIRIUS record company

Stella Gadedi and Yorgos Mouloudakis gained recognition as musicians initially through their work with some of the most notable composers of Greece's contemporary music scene, and then through their own solo recitals and compositions. On this occasion, as a musical offering, they will be performing a select number of excerpts from their second joint recording.

They have appeared for Greece at important international festivals and have worked for several years with pioneering audiovisual technologies in live performances -- in the experimental setting of "studio19st". It was this latter experience that has led them to propose a distinct and immediately recognizable novel approach to established recital formats.

Their records include two joint albums, "City 1" and "Dream for two", and solo work: "Stella Gadedi, solo flute", «When movie theatres were still open-air and would play songs during the intermission », «Gardens of the Night», and «The Book of Memory» featuring Stella Gadedi and "A short report to Manos Hadjidakis", "Yannis Ioannidis -- Chamber Music I", "Jorinde, the Acrobat and the Owl", and "Canciones al Arbor del Olvido" featuring Yorgos Mouloudakis.

MATRIARCHY - A film by Nikos Kornilios

 

Matriarchy poster1

Tainiothiki - ATHENS

from 5 March 2015

Iera odos 48 & Megalou Alexandrou street

Keramikos - Athens

Tel : 210-3609695

 

SIXTY WOMEN. SEVEN DAYS. ONE WORLD.
A shelter is threatened by shutdown and demolition. 60 women of different ages, nationalities and social backgrounds gather in order to defend it, attempting to redefine their place in today’s world. By day they discuss and clash over all matters concerning them: society, sexuality, politics, relations, maternity, work. By night they let themselves free to express, dance, sing, confess their lived experiences to one another. What will come out of such an undertaking?

BEFORE MATRIARCHY
What we call Civilization  is a gendered civilization – it is the male civilization.

Violence is everywhere.

A different way of living on the planet is possible if women give their own imprint on all aspects of life
if they manage to distinguish their voice after millenaries of male dominance on everything, on thought and habits, on the very language we speak every day,
if they go beyond the mere equality of rights to seek their own language, their own way of doing things,
regarding social life and our ways of being together and sharing goods, our relation to the body and its desires,
it is only by means of the feminization of civilization  that an essentially different way of common life on Earth not governed by violence can exist
by the advent of MATRIARCHY
and if it sounds utopian, it is only the scenario
of a film.

N.K.

THE ARRIVAL - Zoe Hatziantoniou

 

The Arrival

 

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE - ATHENS

11 - 22 January 2015

 

What’s it like leaving everything you know behind to travel alone to a strange and distant land, to an unknown place where-for you-nothing has a name? What does it feel like to be a stranger in a strange land?

Based on the wordless graphic novel of the same name by the award-winning author, Shaun Tan, Arrival is a visual and auditory narrative which conveys the experience of the ‘stranger in the strange land’ in a highly inventive way. The director and choreographer Zoe Hatziantoniou has put an original production on stage which brings adults and children face to face with all the changes life can bring, with all the ‘arrivals’ big and small we have to adapt to on a daily basis.

The Arrival is a fairytale about immigration in an imaginary time and place. A father is forced to leave his family and his homeland. With just a suitcase and very little money, he crosses vast oceans to reach an unfamiliar world with bizarre creatures and things. Hampered by language most of all, he seeks shelter, food and work in order to build a new life for himself and his family from scratch. The production is a combination of theatre, dance, photography, silent cinema, video, sound and music. Five performer-narrators employ all the means the theatre provides to compose a history of Arrival live on stage, using objects which produce unfamiliar sounds to construct the production's sound-world (based on a conception by Dimitris Kamarotos), and conjuring up an on-stage theatrical atmosphere which is on the cusp between reality and fantasy, fairytale and life. Arrival is the story of every immigrant, every refugee, every displaced person, but it is also a tribute to everyone who has made this journey.

"The Satin Slipper, or, The Worst is not the Surest by Paul Claudel
Direction and adaptation : Effi Theodorou

Athens Festival

 

Atlazenio Govaki


30-31 July, 20:00 Peiraios 260, Building D

 

Effi Theodorou directs Paul Claudel’s The satin slipper, a paean to the limitless possibilities of the theatre, the stage where “poor Man can, for a few hours, feel like a god”. An oeuvre fleuve which, with daring and naivety, employs every form of theatre from the pathétique to the burlesque, and every mode of acting, to tell of the human adventure: wars of expansion, religious intolerance, the conquest of the New World, and—at the epicenter of the action—Love as a means of knowing the Other: God.

Medea Electronique - Soundscapes / Landscapes

A walk around Onassis Cultural Center (Neos Kosmos, Athens) with the help of an audio-visual interactive map via smart phone or tablet.

 

An online interactive map - Rhizome 1

 

A group of audio and visual artists invite us on a city tour which employs a new form of artistic digital mapping. Starting at the Onassis Cultural Center, viewers armed with a special interactive digital map are guided in real time around Neos Kosmos, a neighbourhood full of secrets and beauty. On the viewer's tablet or smartphone, the area is transformed into a digital urban installation with artworks which draw on material from the digital mapping -the buildings, businesses and public spaces of Neos Kosmos, Panteion university and the local streets- but also, behind and within all that, the people who live there, their history and their present.

A unique interactive experience for your enjoyment.The route you follow may have neither beginning nor end. There is no set time in which you must complete it, not any specific region you must visit. You are free to compose your own route in as flexible a way as you wish, with the only limits being the boundary of the area on the map within which the experience is active. You should only watch out for passing cars as you walk.

In order to make your life easier you may choose to use your own personal smart phone or tablet, given that you will be more familiar with this device than others. If you wish, you may borrow a device from the Onassio Cultural Center.

The collective Ludwig presents for the first time his work in Greece, with his new project "Aporia".

The collective since its inception in Paris in 2001 brings together artists with varied action. Among others have collaborated with George Balanchine, Martha Graham, Jerome Andrews, Kurt Jooss, Pina Bausch, Anna Halprin, Jiri Kylian, William Forsythe.

Among the objectives of the collective stand out :
- The promotion of a composition that highlights the ephemeral nature of orchestral art.
- The emergence of unprecedented moment of creative act.
- The establishment of a conscious public ready to penetrate the maze of each creative event.

The specificity of the exhibition space provoked and inspired creatively Ludwig collective, whose works are intertwined with the spirit of the performance area where each performance takes place.

Video & sound design for the Theatre Performance:

"In the Basements of BBC"

Concept, direction, music by Louisa Kostoula (Violet Louise)

BBC Basements

 

 

MICHAEL CACOYANNIS FOUNDATION - ATHENS

EXTRA - PERFORMANCES
Friday 7, Saturday 8 & Friday 14, Saturday 15 March 2014

21:30 Black Box

[ Address: 206, Piraeus Str. (near Chamosternas Str.) Tavros, Athens 177 78 - Tel.: +30 210 341 8550 ]

Violet Louise presents, the music performance “BBC Basements” based on the life and work of the English composer of electronic music, Delia Derbyshire.

Delia Derbyshire was a pioneer in the field of electronic analogue music and musique concrete and one of the first members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. She composed music and sounds for two hundred radio and television programs as well as the legendary theme of the famous science fiction series, Doctor Who, in collaboration with composer Ron Grainor. Ron Grainor proposed Delia as a co-composer for the music theme of Doctor Who, but BBC refused to give her royalties because she was hired as a sound engineer.

Delia collaborated with avant gard composers and famous pop stars of the music industry (Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Yoko Ono). In 1973 she left BBC, considering her work hadn’t been recognized. For a short period of time she worked in various fields outside the music industry.

In 2000 Peter Camper, a young musician, convinced her to work with him in a new musical project. This project was never finished. She died suddenly, because of her long-term alcoholism.  After her death 264 music tapes and thousands of scores were found in her attic.

Although she was one of the first women who worked in the field of electronic music and sound in those times, she received neither recognition, nor any royalty means for her work.

Delia Derbyshire’s work had to do with analog music. She refused to be part of a system, when computers came along. She felt that this kind of development in electronic field made things easier for those who want to create electronic sounds, even though they don’t have the slightest idea of how an electronic sound is being created.

"Faust" by Goethe

 

Faust

 

 

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE - ATHENS

15 January 2014 - 2 February 2014

20:00 Main Stage

 

Michael Marmarinos returns to the Main Stage for the first time since the OCC opening ceremony he conceived.
The internationally lauded Greek director tackles the myth of the man who sold his soul to the Devil -
the archetypal myth of European modernist thought.
With an exceptional cast and Akyllas Karazisis negotiating the labyrinth of Goethe’s Faust, the innovative Greek director makes use of a host of other intertextual references as well as unexpected spaces to present a production whose descent into the darkest recesses of human Desire promises much.

Live Sound Mix & Sound Supervising for :

"Bacchae" - Georgia Spiropoulos

 

odyssey performance

 

 

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE - ATHENS

11 May 2013 - 21:00 Upper Stage

 

The Greek première of Georgia Spiropoulos’ Bacchae is presented alongside another three of her works over a single evening. The common thread running through all the pieces is the human voice. Spiropoulos composes acoustic, electro-acoustic and mixed works in which she employs music technology. In her work, the avant garde meets oral tradition, and written composition the plasticity of the sonic phenomenon. Spiropoulos studied classical piano, jazz improvisation and advanced theory in Athens and composition, electro-acoustic music and form analysis in Paris. She has a master’s degree from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris, and is a winner of the Villa Médicis Hors les Murs award. She has worked as a musician and orchestrator in the sphere of oral music tradition, and as a composer-researcher at IRCAM, where she investigated ‘metamorphoses’ of the voice via computer. She also collaborates with a number of music groups, soloists and choirs in Europe, the US and Asia, from whom she has received a number of commissions. Her works are played at international festivals, and she is often invited to lecture on her work.

There will be a short pre-performance presentation of the works by Georgia Spiropoulos.

"Wandering tales" - Multimedia performance - Savina Yannatou

 

odyssey performance

 

 

ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE - ATHENS

13 April 2013 - 20:30 Main Stage

 

Languages real and imagined meet in the routes of migration, the meanderings of memory, sea-bed imagery. A journey in sound from the arid lands of expatriation to the watery depths of forgetting, change and metamorphosis. The artful merging of music and the spoken word, with the musicians’ instruments charting a parallel course: from fabulous peregrinations to the phantasmagoria of a world “as rich and strange as an undersea landscape”, the road becomes sound and words. And the music goes on, current and eternal… And the strangest thing of all: even in an era where everything goes (in which everything is connected stylistically or contiguous to everything else), you’re still not likely to find the contemporary double bass and the Renaissance viola da gamba, the modal ney of the East and the well-tempered piano of the West, the historic lyre of Constantinople and the electronic sounds of the 21st century playing together in the same band. But everything’s possible with musicians like these...
 
Savina Yannatou is one of very few artists who could bring so much difference together in a single group to creative effect. Her unusual curriculum vitae reflects the unusual combo she fronts: songs for children and adults, a repertoire ranging from the Mediaeval to the Baroque, the Mediterranean to the Balkans, from Sephardic to Smyrnaean traditions, and from free improvisation through free jazz to music that defies classification.
At her side: Lamia Bedioui (song), Haris Lambrakis (ney), Socrates Sinopoulos (Constantinopolitan lyre), Andreas Linos (viola da gamba), Michalis Siganidis (double bass), Manolis Manoussakis (live electronics, sound design), Maxim Mankofski (percussion), Yiannis Despotakis (vocals). The group is joined by the pianist, vocalist and jazz performer, Evgenia Karlafti, and Yannatou’s long-term collaborator, the poet and translator Giorgos Koropoulis. Savina takes care of the composition, orchestration, and the arrangement of existing material and vocal parts. In search, as ever, of a new poetic of music.

PICCOLO Teatro di Milano - Teatro d' Europa

 

The great epic work of ancient Greek poetry tells the story of Odysseus's journey home after the Trojan War and what happens when the hero arrives at Ithaca. It is a transcendental tale that has always been the symbolic text par excellence about human adventure and the wanderings of existence in a harsh but exciting world.
Robert Wilson's encounter with Homer is one of the major artistic events of this season. One of the most influential and acclaimed artists in world theatre brings his own unique approach to the material. The sensitivity, inventiveness and imagination of the great American director resonate with the Homeric spirit, creating a spellbinding new theatrical language. Eighteen carefully chosen performers and Wilson's own internationally renowned collaborators bring all their artistry to bear on this unique venture, which is intended for all audiences, regardless of age or experience of the theatre.

    EMST

    NATIONAL MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

     

    SonicTime speech/sound/silence

    From the EMST collection

     

    EMST SONICTIME

     

    03/05/2012 - 30/09/2012

    Curated By: Anna Kafetsi

     

    Part of a collection project in progress, the exhibition SonicTime, speech/sound/silence brings together fifty five works from the Museum's collection, which focus on language, sound, music and silence as their common matrix.

    They are video/sound/multimedia installations, single channel video, sound sculptures, drawings, net artworks, sound cd, sound books and performances of the last four decades, which constitute different and heterogenous acoustic forms of contemporary art, in their literal or/and metaphoric version, of older and younger artists coming from diverse artistic backgrounds....

     

    Participation in the exhibition with:

ICESONGS2

A project by Danae Stratou

 in collaboration with Vasilis Kountouris

(2012)

 

 

icesongs2b

 

ICESONGS2 comprises a video & sound work which emerged from the site-specific installation ICESONGS created by Danae Stratou and presented at La Verriere, the exhibition space of the Fondation d’ Enterprise Hermes, in Brussels in 2010.

The most powerful element of the project was the astounding soundscape which had generated from sounds coming directly from the Antarctic Ocean emitted by the icebergs as they form on Antarctica's edges, they collide against each other, squeeze out into the open sea, sail away and finally melt. These sounds, captured by water microphones1 that are lying on the seabed of the Antarctic, are now used by researchers for monitoring Antarctica's melting ice shelf. Dr Alexander Gavrilov2 and Dr Jason Gedamke3 were kind enough to 4convert a large number of samples from their recordings, on my behalf, of the shifting icebergs' sounds and to share them with me for the purpose of this project.

 

The final composition of ICESONGS, kept intact in ICESONGS2, is a 20’ minute long soundscape comprising 7 “sound-waves”. These have been synthesised by transforming and the speed of 7 of the original - specially converted - recordings so that they vary in pitch and timbre and in this way reflect the rich range and diverse qualities of the sounds produced by the travelling, braking, colliding and melting of the icebergs.

 

These Iceberg’s songs coming from deep within the Antarctic Ocean are like voices coming out of an imagined landscape, at once familiar and alien, so powerful that they compelled me to attempt, in collaboration with sound and multimedia specialist, Vasilis Kountouris, to create a visual imagery that could potentially accompany the soundscape and thus form a new autonomous work. The result of this collaboration is the video/sound work ICESONGS2.

Two celebrated Greek virtuosos -- flutist Stella Gadedi and guitarist Yorgos Mouloudakis -- perform 'all-time classics' in a mood that is close to 'pop', as they pick out the profile of an imaginary city, made up of bits of other towns or cities, neighbourhoods or districts, people, times, moments, and sounds.

Works by Satie, Piazzolla, Stravinsky, Dyens, Ibert, Gossec, Hadjidakis and others, follow the composers' itineraries within their own towns in the manner that snatches of music accompany us within our real or imaginary 'cities'.

About the sound: the live performance of the musicians in combination with the daring sound design achieved by "studio19st" (multimedia team) give the listener a feeling of 'being there'. In between the pieces are the brash intrusions of city 1's urban soundscape: the cries of children playing in the square, cars whizzing by, people's voices heard from a light-well, hawkers in the Varvakios Market, whispering from the flat next door, a train rumbling into Theseion metro station...

[city 1] is available on CD from SIRIUS record company

Stella Gadedi and Yorgos Mouloudakis gained recognition as musicians initially through their work with some of the most notable composers of Greece's contemporary music scene, and then through their own solo recitals and compositions. On this occasion, as a musical offering, they will be performing a select number of excerpts from their second joint recording.

They have appeared for Greece at important international festivals and have worked for several years with pioneering audiovisual technologies in live performances -- in the experimental setting of "studio19st". It was this latter experience that has led them to propose a distinct and immediately recognizable novel approach to established recital formats.

Their records include two joint albums, "City 1" and "Dream for two", and solo work: "Stella Gadedi, solo flute", «When movie theatres were still open-air and would play songs during the intermission », «Gardens of the Night», and «The Book of Memory» featuring Stella Gadedi and "A short report to Manos Hadjidakis", "Yannis Ioannidis -- Chamber Music I", "Jorinde, the Acrobat and the Owl", and "Canciones al Arbor del Olvido" featuring Yorgos Mouloudakis.

 Sound Design for the Performance :

IN SENSO OPERA

    7-9 July 1912

    Peiraios 260, Building D - Athens

     

ATHENS & EPIDAURUS FESTIVAL 2012

 

“I am Countess Livia Serpieri. I turned my lover, Sergeant Franz Mahler, into the Austrian army for desertion”.

 

After I’m dying like a country, a performance that has flown the Athens Festival standard at some of Europe’s most significant cultural events, Michael Marmarinos and Dimitris Dimitriadis return with an “opera without music” inspired by Luchino Visconti’s Senso.

The Countess’s interior monologue on an erotic passion that led to humiliation and a triple betrayal—of homeland, class and lover—is performed with singular presence by a chorus of Greek actresses (with one Italian in among them).

13/5/2012

Dimitris Kamarotos [audio]

Nikos Kyriazopoulos [audio]

Vasilis Kountouris (studio19st) [visuals]

Dimitris Kamarotos & Nikos Kyriazopoulos perform a special concert that took place in Knot Gallery in Athens 05/13/2012. Performing with modular synthesizer systems and electromechanic devices the artists built long duration soundscapes of sine waves, mechanical noise and electronic pulsers. The audience had the choice to move in the place perceiving the sound in different timbre and level.

Along with the sound performance, Vassilis Koundouris (studio19st) manipulated the system’s audio output signal producing video projections of special "water - Chladni"  Patterns.

"Danae Stratou"

"Black Boxes!"

at

20 KOLONAKI SQ (ATHENS)

19/04/2012 - 19/05/2012

 


It's time to open the black boxes!

100 words

100 numbers

100 screens

100 black boxes

1 message

 

And the countdown begins the shape and the rhythm of a time bomb…

The visual artist Danae Stratou presents from April 19 until May 19 her new project at Zoumboulakis Galleries. It’s an installation entitled “It’s time to open the Black Boxes!”.

In a period of multiple crises, the projects targets at activating a dialogue which will induce us to react in a collective manner against the immobility that “friezes” us. By opening the “Black Boxes” we symbolically light up the words which reflect what we are in danger of losing and need to rescue or what threatens us today.

Through the exhibition the viewer has the chance to actively participate. With the inducement of the artist Danae Stratou, the audience had the opportunity, via a specially formed blog, to participate in the evolution of the work, by offering a word and expressing symbolically his own manner of thinking and reaction. The participation of the world was great, as it overcame the 1000 word submissions

A project by Danae Stratou, 2012

The Initiative:

Greece, Europe and indeed the World are experiencing a period of multiple crises – economic, social, political, environmental. IT’S TIME TO OPEN THE BLACK BOXES! Is a participatory art project initiated by artist Danae Stratou. Living in Greece in this time of multiple crises, it is quite easy to fall into a state of fear-induced paralysis. As a reaction to this the artist resolved to act by means of an art project. Her hope was for this artwork to reflect and to ease Athens’ anxious struggle to carry on. Distanced from traditional commercial practices, it aspired to undercut its own costs, to give voice and to assist materially as many as people possible, to help attain a deeper understanding of our collective predicament, to empower a joint response to the paralysis that is causing us to “frieze up”. The project targets at activating a dialogue that will induce us to react in a collective manner. By opening the “Black Boxes” we symbolically bring to light the words which reflect, what we are in danger of losing and need to rescue, or what threatens us today.

Open call | Participatory angle | Touring
The project was originally inaugurated in Athens, Greece in April 2012. Through the use of a Vital Space blog, social media and other means, a wide range of people were invited to contribute to the project by submitting the one word that best expresses A) what frightens or threatens them the most, or B) what they believe is in urgent need of protection. The artist reviewed the nearly 1,000 submissions and chose 100 of them to be included in an installation comprising 100 black boxes.

Danae Stratou now aims at presenting this installation Internationally. The open call cycle will be re-activated each time the project is to travel in a new city for a period of 1-3 months prior to each exhibition. Through the Vital Space blog, a wide range of social media and conventional local media local communities will be invited to participate (by sending a word each). In this way the Black Boxes, when opened in a different city, will reveal local concerns, hopes and fears in a manner which, nevertheless, bind the different cities together. Thus the project will be constantly in flux in ways that reflect the think-global/act-local adage.
