BESTIARIO. A theater/archaeology performance. Tuesday 1 & Wednesday 2 August 2023. Crete. Archaeological site of Gournia, Lasithi


BESTIARIO is the title of the Theatre/Archaeology show that will take place,  within the framework of the 2023 program of the “All of Greece one Culture” institution of the Ministry of Culture, on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd August in Crete and specifically  at the Archaeological Site of Gournia in Pachia Ammos Ierapetra.

Efthymis Theou signs the dramaturgy and direction of this genuine performance.

Performers:  Theano Metaxa, Efthymis Theou


Two performers introduce to the public the prehistoric settlement in Gournia in eastern Crete not from the point of view of human action, but as a field of other beings, i.e. the animals that inhabited it and inhabit it: in the past, as shown by paleontological fossils and (zoo)archaeological their remains, as much as in current species, in the present – even in the prospects they have in the future. In an effort to reflect and comprehensively understand the relationships between the creatures of the world in the long run.

The performance is part of the already ten-year-old activity of the artistic group that combines theater and archeology and explores: how theatrical means can be used to approach the archaeological material with a new perspective while simultaneously strengthening bilateral ties with the respective local community; but also how archaeological tools (such as excavation and study of finds) can contribute to the creation of a site-specific artistic work.

NEON-Greek National Opera| Artist on The Composer | Ιoanna Pantazopoulou


The Artist on the Composer  –a pioneering programme run by the  Greek National Opera in collaboration with NEON  – connects contemporary artists with classical music and opera since 2019..

For its third iteration, the programme -curated by GNO’s Artistic Director Giorgos Koumendakis and NEON’s Director Elina Kountouri-commissions the artist Ioanna Pantazopoulou to create an immersive installation  in which visual arts and music invite audiences to discover a magical, fairy tale world.

A Summer Evening is a suspended installation consisting of 135 sculptures that disappear and reappear in a meticulously choreographed sequence, accompanied by the thirty-six-minute music score Music for a Summer Evening (Makrokosmos III ) by contemporary American composer George Crumb performed live by Nikos Kyriosoglou,  and Stefanos Thomopoulos  (amplified piano) as well as Kazuyo Tsunehiro, Kostas Argyropoulos (percussion).

The work is choreographed progressively, inextricably linked to the music, and reveals a playful yet dystopian environment. A tropical island drawn from Pantazopoulou’s childhood memories of her visits to her father in the Seychelles, where he was Consul General of Greece. A natural landscape resembling to a childhood dream, between the world we know and a blur, uncertain threat. A place threatened by overexploitation yet protected by rituals, myths and the imagination.

Ioanna Pantazopoulou lives and works in New York. She creates sculptural monuments and immersive installations that seek to disrupt and challenge the conventional approach of spaces and objects. Her works overturn the notion of experience and participation and attempt – through unexpected collisions – to create new connections between the past and the present, to what has been lost and recovered. Her works appear in several permanent collections: Solomon R. Guggenheim and MCA Chicago, Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection.

George Crumb (1929-2022) is one of the most important avant-garde contemporary music composers of the 20th century. Crumb established a unique musical language while his work has received, among other prizes, a Pulitzer Prize for music (1968) and a Grammy Award (2001). His work is included in the repertoire of preeminent musical ensembles and organizations around the world.

Makrokosmos is a series of four volumes of pieces for piano, The name alludes to Mikrokosmos, a set of piano pieces by Béla Bartók. The third volume, entitled Music for a Summer Evening is scored for two amplified pianos as well as percussion

Participation in the co-production of Greek National Opera is made possible by a Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) [] grant for enhancing the GNO’s artistic outreach.

NEON is solely funded by its founder Dimitris Daskalopoulos.

Research project for the restoration of the Didymoteicho Fortress


The Ministry of Culture is investigating the way and methods of restoration of the Didymoteicho Fortress, with the aim of its promotion and integration into the city’s environment, in the framework of a research project conducted in cooperation with the Faculty of Engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The research project will be completed in June 2024.

As Minister of Culture  Lina Mendoni said, “The holistic protection and balanced promotion of our cultural heritage in all regions of the country, with particular emphasis on border regions, such as  Evros, is our strategic priority. In the planning of the Ministry of Culture, apart from the projects for the promotion of the Roman city of Plotinopolis and the restoration of the Bayezid Mosque, which is already underway, we include the restoration and functional connection of the  Didymoteicho Fortress  with the other monuments of the city. Τhe Didymoteicho Fortress – its present form dates back to the 6th century AD – is the most famous castle city in Thrace. Built on dozens of carved caves, it dominates the city. The complexity and importance of the project make it necessary for a research project to be carried out by an interdisciplinary team of specialised scientists with experience in similar projects, as we have done in other cases. The research programme will identify priorities for the programming of the required interventions. Our aim is to highlight the entrances of the Castle, the routes within it, the immediate surrounding area and its organic integration into the fabric of the city of Didymoteicho. The work includes the research for the historical, architectural documentation, the analysis and mapping of the monument as a whole and the examination of its pathology, as a whole, but also of its individual parts.

H Πύλης της Γέφυρας στο Κάστρο Διδυμοτείχου

In the Byzantine Empire, Didymoteicho was an important commercial, administrative and military centre. Its great geostrategic position made it a landmark from ancient times. Its strong fortification, with thick walls that formed the castle’s enclosure, contributed to this. Today, the enclosure is preserved in its greatest length. Inside the enclosure there are scattered caves, which were used as part of the houses. There are a total of 24 towers along the 1 km long perimeter of the walls. According to historical sources, the walls of Didymoteicho were reconstructed under Justinian the Great and reinforced in 751 AD, under Constantine V and later in 1303.

From 1713 to 1714, the King of Sweden, Charles IV, resided in the Castle of Didymoteicho in a state of semi-captivity. In the castle’s enclosure there is a small stone church and the present Armenian church of Aghios Georgios (Sourp Kevork). It is built on the site of the Byzantine church of Aghios Georgios of Paleokastriti, where John VI Kantakouzenos was crowned emperor on 26 October 1341.

Summer Cinematic Magic in Greece’s finest hotels. By Panos Liakos


The hotels of our country offer a wide range of services to their Greek and International guests. Beyond the specialized services related to the aesthetics and well-being of the body, several hotel organizations wish to give their guests something more than that; special experiences, which simultaneously address the body, the spirit and the senses of their elite guests. A distinct art such as cinema can offer the opportunity for a multi-layered experience, combining high aesthetics, the elevation of the spirit and the consumption of fine food and drink. In recent years, more and more luxury hotels have organized summer movie screenings in their pools and gardens, trying to capture the guest's senses in a classy fashion.

Hotel Grande Bretagne-Athens

In one of the most historic buildings in Athens, lovers of high aesthetics can enjoy summer screenings with the iconic Lycabettus in the background. Indeed, every week, on the seventh floor of the hotel, next to the well-lit swimming pool of Grande Bretagne , one can enjoy with the Pool Your Cinema screening series from Thursday to Sunday, for the whole summer until the end of September, classic films of world cinema. Frankie and JohnnyBreakfast at Tiffanys,AlfieThe Best Offer and many more interesting options with high-class performances and original screenplays that refer to the best moments of the cinematic art. However, the hotel offers more than a picturesque screening of each film. Every time a visit to its seventh floor is a surprise, since in the comfortable armchairs set up around the pool, in addition to their drink, the visitors can also enjoy a delicious finger food menu, Black Angus Cheeseburgers as well as try something that won't get a chance to taste at any conventional summer screening: Caramelized Popcorn with Madagascar Vanilla and Salt Flower.

Hotel Vyzantino-Arta

This amazing hotel of Epirus is spread over 35 acres in the green area of Filothei, Arta, which is only a short distance (about 5 km) from the main urban environment. Hotel Vyzantino offers its guests cool cocktails near its magnificent swimming pool, a restaurant of high aesthetics and Mediterranean culinary delights (with the colors of wood and marble dominating its interior), while every summer it sets up an outdoor summer cinema. Next to a green garden, surrounded by exotic trees, in a location where the guests are under the starry sky, that is where the cinematic canvas of Hotel Vyzantino is set. On a warm summer evening, one cannot ask for anything better and more refreshing than to enjoy a drink in these dreamlike, ideal conditions.

The  Bold  Type Hotel-Patras

A neoclassical building in the Upper Town of Patraswas transformed into a five-star hotel! Mixing tradition with minimalist aesthetics, The Bold Type Hotel  offers an unrepeatable experience to architecture lovers, since the stay can be combined with a visit to the Castle and the Roman Conservatory of Patras. The pleasures promised by the hotel do not stop here. At the back of the lodge, a secret courtyard leads visitors to a rendezvous with haute gastronomy and art. In collaboration with the Film Club of Patras, The Bold Type Hotel, in this very garden with its almost century-old palm tree, organizes a series of summer screenings. From Rome to  New York (Roman Holiday), and from Chile (1976) to Austria (Corsage), the program of screenings, accompanied by the most unexpected cocktails (brought by Manon- /strong>Kapfer--Drink Factory London-Connaught Bar London), can only seduce the guest.

Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki-Thessaloniki

The Hyatt Regency of Thessaloniki needs no special recommendations. Its name is intertwined with the amenities it offers to its guests, its legendary Ambrosia restaurant and its impeccable conference services. Did you know, however, the dimensions that the visitor's experience can take in this jewel of Thessaloniki? Every summer Wednesday, Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki organizes Cinema Nights by the Pool. This is actually much more than just another summer screenings next to a hotel pool. Focusing on showing important Hollywood films that defined the history of cinema, such asWall Street and The Godfather it offers its guests a menu with five different options; options that will travel the palate from exotic Cairo  to the "eternal city’’, Rome, and from Frankfurt to the Mecca of Cinema, California..

Hotel Papanikola- Arcadia

We would definitely recommend the movie nights organized this August in Piana, Arcadia by the Hotel Papanikola  in its welcoming garden with a view of... the sky. In collaboration with REAL CINEMA SCREEN, the most prominent company conducting open air screenings, movies for all ages will be screened between August 18-20, from Le Petite Nicolas  to the hilarious Rendez-vous chez les Malawas, a French comedy with Christian Clavier, and of course, the ultimate Greek summer film, Cheap Smokes,- - in the presence of director  Renos Charalambidis.

Historical Archive-Museum of Hydra. Exhibition. Vassilis Theocharakis. Glaucous Sea (16/09-16/11 2023)


 The Historical Archive-Museum of Hydra will present the Vassilis Theocharakis exhibition Glaucus Sea which will be inaugurated by the Minister of Tourism, Mrs. Olga Kefalogianni, on Saturday, September 16, 2023, at 20:00 in Hydra.

This thematic exhibition will include more than thirty representative oil paintings and watercolors from the last years of the painter’s work. And as Panagiotis Tetsis has pointed out: ”Theocharakis sees, he does not imagine, nor does he resort to the leaven of memories. He observes and captures everything that catches his eye. Some of his works give the impression that he is searching to capture the moment, a moment, the foam of the sea through the pebbles; it gives the impression that he is examining, investigating; to find what? something precious and the precious is in front of him: the bottom with the pebbles. He sees not from the height of the eye horizon, a little higher, from some distance down, and carefully studies the seascape. My personal impression is such, it is what I am commenting on.Why these minor remarks? Because these and more count, apart from the inner warmth with which he is endowed, which is the motivation of his painting. He has the virtue and ranks in the great family of those who have open eyes and insist on painting. They are the believers of painting, the opposite of those who have been indoctrinated in the international conspiracy of denial. Everyone does what they think. Affirmation of freedom in action”.

The Head of the General State Archives, Mrs. Dina Adamopoulou has emphasized among others: “The main theme of the exhibition in Hydra, the sea, is for Vassilis Theocharakis one of the primary values of his Art. How could it not be for a man endowed with corresponding sensibilities, since not only Art but also Life itself invests in its mysterious and enchanting beauty? Except that the seas of Theocharakis are painted with his completely personal handwriting, with the stamp of his own ink that magically manages to render with rough lines the blue brightness, the shining of the sun, the imposing gray of the rocks, the perpetual movement of the liquid element…The art and technique of our dear Vassilis Theocharakis is a treasure for all of us!”

Vasilis Theocharakis was born in Piraeus. Along with his studies at the Law School of the University of Athens, from where he graduated in 1957, he attended painting classes with the great painter Spyros Papaloukas, Professor at the Athens School of Fine Arts. His works were presented for the first time in 1957, at the International Youth Festival in Moscow, as well as at the 5th Panhellenic Painting Exhibition in Zappeion. He has held many individual exhibitions in Greece and abroad and has participated in many group exhibitions. His works can be found in public and private collections in Greece (National Gallery-Alexander Soutsos Museum, Vorre Museum, Pieridis Foundation, Rhodes Gallery, Cyclades Gallery, Telloglion Art Foundation of the University of Athens, MOMus-Museum of Contemporary Art-Collections of the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art and the State Museum of Contemporary Art, etc.), as well as abroad. He has been honored by the French government with the distinction of Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, he has been named Grand Cartulary of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, he has received the Order of the Rising Sun with Neck Ribbon from the Emperor of Japan as well as the decoration of the Order’s Superior Brigadier of Finikos by the President of the Hellenic Republic. In 2007, he founded the non-profit Vassilis & Marina Theocharakis Visual Arts and Music Foundation, which is housed in the multi-storey building at 9 Vasilissis Sofias Street, in Athens.

The exhibition will last until November 16, 2023 and will be accompanied by a multi-page catalog of the same title of the Melissa publications, with all the exhibited works, as well as texts by Christopher Hudson (former Director of Publications of the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York), Takis Mavrotas, Claudio Strinati (former Curator of the Museums of Rome), Panagiotis Tetsis, Marina Lambrakis-Plakas and Angelos Delivorias.

In accordance with the final directions we gave, in December 2022, in a broad meeting, with the participation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the American School of Classical Studies of Athens and the relevant Municipality, the Central Archaeological Council gave a positive opinion on the study to improve the access and readability of the archaeological area of Ancient Corinth, as well as to upgrade the services provided to visitors, by creating basic infrastructure in existing buildings within the archaeological site. According to the schedule we set at the meeting on July 31st – with the participation of the competent services of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the American School and the Municipality – our goal is to have completed all the studies by the end of the year – building studies, protection studies, highlighting the Southern Stoa, the Old Museum and the Arena – so that we can utilize the financial tools of the next financial period. Through the prioritization of the monumental cores, the unification of the archaeological sites, the connection of the scattered monuments and the improvement of their accessibility, we seek to strengthen the visitation to the core of the archaeological site, but also to create new poles of cultural interest within it, contributing in upgrading the experience of the visitor, but also the connection of the archaeological site with the local society and economy”.

In the meeting, on July 31, 2011, chaired by Lina Mendoni, the Deputy Minister of Culture Christos Dimas, the General Secretary of Culture Giorgos Didaskalou, the Mayor of Corinth Vassilis Nanopoulos, the Director of the American School of Classical Studies of Athens Bona Wescoat, the General Director of the American School of Classical Studies of Athens Pantelis Panos, the Director of Excavations of Ancient Corinth Chris Plaff, the Deputy Director of Excavations of Corinth Ioulia Tzonou, the President of the Organization for the Management and Development of Cultural Resources Nicoletta Valakou, the Director of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities Elena Kountouri, the director of the Department for Restoration of Ancient Monuments Themis Vlachoulis, the Project Manager for Museums and Cultural Buildings Kostas Frisiras, the Corinth Antiquities Commissioner Panagiota Kasimis, and other officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also participated.




Prayer areas are the following:

The chapel in the first OAC building, dedicated to the brothers from Thessaloniki, Saints Kyrillos and Methodios, the enlighteners of the Slavs.

The architectural design was by Manos Petrakis.

Η μεγάλη εικόνα της Αγίας Τριάδος (“Φιλοξενία του Αβραάμ”) είναι αντίγραφο της γνωστής εικόνας του Αντρέα Ρουμπλιώφ (14ος αιώνας) και προσφέρθηκε στην ΟΑΚ ως δώρο του Πατριαρχείου Μόσχας,το 1979, από τον τότε Πατριάρχη Αλέξιο.

The saints are celebrated on 11 May.

The chapel dedicated to Saint Makarios, which is located in an adapted cave to the north of the OAC facilities, where his memory is celebrated on 19 January.


Saints Cyril and Methodius

On Sunday 11 May 1986, the feast day of the brothers from Thessaloniki, Saints Kyrillos and Methodios, Great Missionaries and Enlighteners of the Slavs, the inauguration ceremony was held, and then an archiepiscopal joint liturgy was held, with the participation of the late Metropolitan of Kissamos and Selinon Eirinaios, and other bishops, in the framework of the First Meeting of the Members of the OAC. Every year, the OAC hosts a conference on missionary work. Moreover, this Chapel also an ideal place for visitors and pupils to get to know the symbolisms of the Holy Liturgy through the beautiful woodcut screen or iconostasis, the icons of which were created by Spyros Kardamakis.


Abba Makarios Chapel

On the occasion of the celebration of the Saint (19 January), in the presence of many conference participants and other guests, the late Metropolitan of Kissamos and Selinon, Eirinaios, along with Reverend Professor Father Athanasios Henein (Coptic Church of Egypt) laid a foundation stone from Egypt in the cave to the north of the Academy, where a hermitage to Saint Makarios has been created. This choice is connected with the OAC´s International Art & Literature Programme “Face to face».

Metamorphosis in Nopigia

On 28 June 1993 the Chapel at Nopigeia, Kissamos (Euro-Mediterranean Youth Center) was founded by the late Metropolitan of Kissamos and Selinon, Eirinaios. The selection of this feast is important, as the main objective of the Centre is to contribute to the spiritual transformation of young people and encourage their participation in an effort aimed at the transformation of life and the world. There is a stone from Mount Thabor built into the wall of the Chapel. In addition, the day of its feast also reminds us of the day when the nuclear bomb fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 August 1945). The fact that this celebration and tragedy coincide, is a cause for reflection and a reminder of the responsibility held by everyone concerning the active pursuit of peace and life. Each year, after the end of the Vesper, various events are held (musical and theatrical performances), especially in the adjacent Stone Theatre.

Paintιng Exhibition. “Konstantinos Volanakis. Nostos of the sea”. Artworks from the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, at the Municipal Art Gallery of Chania (21/07-31/12 2023)


The exceptional Greek painter of the sea, Konstantinos Volanakis. , “returns” back to Crete, the island he was born on, for the first time. The 57 artworks  of the imperial that painted imperial triumphs, of the glorious moments of Greek History, but also of humble fishing boats, make up the exhibition “Konstantinos Volanakis: Nostos of the sea, artworks from the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation” which will be held at the Municipal Art Gallery of Chania and has been placed under the auspices of Her Excellence, the President of the Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou. The exhibition also includes oil paintings belonging to the Hellenic Navy, the Hellenic Parliament, and the Bank of Greece.

“If a Greek visual artist can “claim” that he faced the immensity of the sea, then he is none other than Konstantinos Volanakis (1837-1907). His artistic production, spanning over half a century, covering almost the entire second half of the 19th and the first years of the 20th century, produced a set of works unsurpassed, quantitatively and qualitatively.

The fact that his art was not rewarded, at least as much as he should have been, during his lifetime has to do with the state of modern Greek art and more broadly with the historical facts in Greece of his time; the fact that today he is now duly honored – and overrated, in terms of commerciality – is again related to the facts of modern Greek reality.

Η πυρπόληση της τουρκικής ναυαρχίδας, 1890-95 (λάδι σε καμβά, 79 x 154 εκ.) – Συλλογή Ιδρύματος Αικατερίνης Λασκαρίδη

What is certain is that Konstantinos Volanakis rendered with his paintbrushes the sea and, above all, its world, in a unique way, thus enshrining, artistically and culturally, the most emblematic element and field of the Greek world, seamanship”, he notes among other things the curator of the exhibition, Art historian and curator of the art collection of the Hellenic Parliament, Thodoris Koutsoyiannis.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a colored fully illustrated bilingual (Greek-English) catalogue.

Through the duration of this exhibition, organized guided tours for adults and educational programs for students of all school grades will be scheduled.

“Sacred Land”  is the title of George Pastakas’ latest exhibition that deals with the landscapes of Tinos Island and will be aired on July 17th at 7:00 pm in the Cultural and Educational Center of the Municipality of Tinos (Moschouleios School), in Tinos town.

On the occasion of the festive year for the 200th anniversary of the Finding of the icon of the Annunciation, a painting series was created that praises the Tinian landscape. As stated in the text of the exhibition, “it deals with all these elements that led the island to radiate an irresistible charm to the people of the arts. Its rocky, marble-filled grounds, the strong wind that creates images in constant motion, the effect of light during the different hours of the day that changes the shadows are included in a visual ensemble the mysterious and prayerful element that characterizes the nature of Tinos.

Γιώργος Παστάκας. Ιερή Γη

The distinctive, expressionist touch of the artist, which often escapes from the frame of the work, captures the island’s unique physiognomy and its special aura. Soft color tones succeed the most intense yellows and blues creating a colorful painting universe. The exhibition is completed with selected artworks from two previous series of works done for the island. These are works of art from the series The Wounds of Stone that deal with the quarries of the island and the Tinian Vespers that explore the religious element within the Tinian landscape. Τα Τραύματα της Πέτρας που πραγματεύονται τα λατομεία του νησιού και τους Τηνιακούς Εσπερινούς που διερευνούν το θρησκευτικό στοιχείο μέσα στο τηνιακό τοπίο.

These works were previously exhibited at the Museum of Marble Crafts of the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation, the Hellenic-French Association, and the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation with enormous success. In Sacred Land, the visual composition is presented complete, highlighting the Tinian horizon as a prime example of the Cycladic topography.
