19:00 - 20:30 "Fairy tales that don't put children to sleep and wake up adults"

educational program

Fairy tales are told not to put children to sleep, but instead to wake up the grown-ups. The Greeks of Asia Minor had a distinct cultural identity, which they carried with them when they were uprooted. We will hear tales and sounds from other homelands, such as The snake tree from Smyrna, The cobbler from Vourla, Eating is a habit, from the stories of Hoxha, The ant and the camel, The snake from Smyrna.

Narration and interpretation: Maria Tsouknaki

Musical Director.

The narration will be followed by a workshop on sourdough bread, in which young and old can participate.

21:30 Concert with Christos Thivaios

Christos Thevios brings together and presents his best moments and greatest hits, from "The Usual Suspects" and "Hamlet of the Moon" to "Iron Island". A special emphasis in the program he presents is a tribute to his beloved friend and composer, Thanos Mikroutsikos. He also selects from his great discography all his own songs that we love and "marries" them with songs that he himself loves. He has also included a musical journey to his neighborhood, Exarchia, which was associated with some of the most important figures of our modern culture: Nikolas Asimos, Pavlos Sidiropoulos, and Arleta.
