 Theatre 

Six Nights in Acropolis with Stamatis Kraounakis
Date: Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 September 2018
Venue: Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street, W1U 5AS
Details: “Six Nights in Acrobolis”, the only completed novel written by the Nobel laureate poet George Seferis, is a narrative of confessions, love and friendship, and it revolves around an aspiring poet, and the visits of seven young friends to Acropolis on six consecutive nights of full moon. The poet, a would-be Greek, is someone who after years abroad, cannot see how to “find my path in my own country” and compares himself to the reproduction on the Acropolis of a caryatid that was spirited away to the British Museum a century before. The moonlight on the Acropolis is almost a character in its own right, “that plunged over all like a fishnet woven of violet steel.”
Directed by Anastasia Revi
Based on the novel by George Seferis

Sunday 30 September 3.30pm and 7.30pm

Date: Friday 01 Kune - Friday 29 June 2018
Venue: Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street, London, W1U 5AS Details: Agni Kapuscinska, a performance artist, actress and teacher, uses a unique physical language which Dimitris Kourakos sets to capture with his photographic lens; together, they are working in a collaborative way which is still evolving.
This multidisciplinary project ‘Where Do You Come From’ is an ongoing video, photography and performance work always progressing, unfolding deep feelings and thoughts to the audience.
Accordring to the two artists, “the Animal symbolism is simply an animal within, the sacred connection we have with nature, that part that we often neglect. We all share one Spirit the essence of living energy, interconnecting our lives in the most profound ways. It’s a long forgotten link to our ancient past where Therianthropes existed in the consciousness of our ancestors and were portrayed in prehistoric Art on rocks and caves and were preserved within legends and myths”.
