Musical narrations

Come Saturday, actress Elena Agathokelous and musician Dimitris Spyrou will take to the ANANs 8Bit stage in Paphos where they will present the theatrical performance To Skasimon, an Acoustic Narration.

To Skasimon will be staged like a concert, and is about the adventure of a roaming soul. Based on two masterpieces of Greek classical literature, The Murderess by Alexandros Papadiamantis and Ascesis: The Saviours of God by Nikos Kazantzakis, the performance creates “a new narration for the agony of existence”.

The Murderess revolves around lost or oppressed female desire, as well as the lack of choices for women. Grandmother Fragogiannou tries violently to change the fate of women by killing little girls, believing that by doing this she is actually saving them from pain and sorrow.

Meanwhile, the fragments from Ascesis show how personal debt has become somewhat of a necessity for existence.

Performance by actress Elena Agathokleous and musician Dimitris Spyrou. December 3. ANANAs 8Bit, Paphos. 8.30pm. €5. In Greek with English subtitles. Tel: 26-600126
