Nowhere

 

by Dimitris Papaioannou

 

Ziller Building – Central Theatre

Nowhere is a work about the physical space of the theatrical stage. Constantly changing and defined by the men and women that inhabit it, it can be countless different places while designed to be nowhere at all.

For the inaugural production of the new Ziller Building, Dimitris Papaioannou has enlisted the help of Coti K., Zafos Xagoraris, Alekos Giannaros and Thanos Papastergiou to create a work that exploits the new equipment of the Main Stage by stripping it bare. Twenty-six performers measure the space – and measure themselves against its capabilities – in a specially designed work that can be performed nowhere else.

Construction on the streets of Psirri

Now the directions for AthenStyle hostel is really easy:

When you arrive to Monastiraki square, you pass Ermou and follow Ermou to the left and then you will see some road construction on your right side, that is Agias Theklas, the home of AthenStyle. When you look at our street for the moment it feels like going back 50 years (at least Ive heard so), the asphalt is gone and all you see is a dusty road. If you ask me i think it looks quite nice, mystical in some way. But for you all that dont see the charm in a dust cloud that rises behind the car that shines in yellow from the street light i can tell you that its only temporarily. And why?

The streets of Psirri is becoming pedestrian streets with plants and it finally get that facelift that suits this part of town, where the galleries are popping up, where theaters are opening and where the bars and cafe’s are.
