Athens: a city, a myth, a notion or the prima-donna of crisis? (hybrid performance in English)
REVOLT ATHENΣ is a poetic “Lonely Planet”that comes from the edge of Europe, where facts blare with fantasies.
Who owns authorship of our stories?
How can we reverse the stereotypical image of Athens partly perceivedas a deadened city, partly as an exotic Southern experiment on sustainable strategies in times of crisis?
Three performers on a stage-landscape of destruction and regeneration, attempt to reverse stereotypical images of Athens that are being reproduced worldwide.
Against media reports, financialbreakdowns and tourist guides, REVOLT ATHENΣ constitutes an alternative English spoken "city guide" that tries to dig out thedramatic unconsciousness of its inhabitants.
Athens is a hot city: Myths and facts, arias and noisescapes, Monteverdi and Elvis, the God of Snakes, a hybrid creature of the antiquity, tear gas, deep confessions and riots, a DIY model of Athens constitute this new media interactive alternative concert guide.
