Michael Cacoyannis Foundation presents on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd of December, at 21:00, the “Apocalypse of John”, a unique literature work with a special place in the global literature.
In a poetic version in Modern Greek, the “Apocalypse of John” is a universal work of literature that moves between the prophesy and the vision, the agony and the transgression.
The music is composed by Nikos Papakostas, the direction and narration by George Karamichos.
Without altering its context or getting arbitrary meanings, the work reveals all its uniqueness and multiple symbolic meanings through the word of John.
Nikos Papakostas pursued to make more understandable to the reader and to the listener an extremely difficult and sometimes grumpy and incomprehensible text and this was the reason that he chose to use at the translation and its poetic rendering a simple, comprehensive and without extremities language.
The artistic creations by Ioannis Vlazakis, the light designs by Christina Thanasoula and the sound effects by Ilias Lakkas are matching with the play, while musicians Maria Rempoutsika (1st violin), George Konstantinidis (2nd violin), Filenia Spachi (Cello), Nikos Pitloglou (piano), Kostas Koutsikouris (acoustic guitar), will be performing live on stage Nikos Papacostas’ music.
Tickets are available at the Foundation’s Box Office (Piraeus 206, Tavros), Mon-Fri 11:00 – 14:00 as well as one hour before the performance. Pre-sales are available at PUBLIC, Daily, 09:00 – 21:00, Saturday, 09:00 – 20:00.
