Mikis Theodorakis: The love songs with Plastikes Karekles Date: Tuesday 29 May 2018 Venue: Komedia Brighton, 44 Gardner Street, Brighton Details:
Mikis Theodorakis is known very much as a political activist. Much of his music reflects this deep involvement in politics. However, today we will be setting politics aside and performing the love songs of this great composer.

There might even be time to squeeze in a Zorba’s dance!!!

bringing a laptop, her hiking boots and plans for a peaceful life, she has no idea what surprises are in store. Diving into an exciting new life with a fisherman, she learns something every day. Joining the dancing at local festivals and helping at a café on the beach, surviving winter storms and finding a canine companion, she is faced with both challenges and rewards, and discovers that to become an island woman she must live small and think big.
