About the Event

«SIX & FIVE». The power of combining the Fifth Art (music) with the Sixth Art (theatre). It is a proposition on how the arts emerge and are featured in between other art forms, proving their interconnected character.

The concert: «SIX & FIVE», is a unique homage to the Greek Theatrical song. It is a collective initiative by young musicians, with the idea of presenting significant songs of the Contemporary Greek Theatrical Dramaturgy, with well- known and lesser-known pieces, presented with new orchestrations. The concert presents an amalgamation of different music types of theatrical songs, which gained popularity throughout the years.

This concert aims to highlight crucial social issues, as for example, the inequality, the less represented social groups, racism, and psychological illnesses. The aim of this concert is to raise awareness to the general audience, especially the younger ages, through the musical and literary perspective, showing how the aforementioned social issues were expressed artistically through the Greek Theatre of the 20th and 21th century.

The choices of the songs are carefully selected, in order to feature the aforementioned topics, covering a wide range of repertoire, presenting works of well-known 20th and 21st century Greek composers (Hadjidakis, Theodorakis, Xarchakos, Karamouratides etc).

Katerina Paraschou will be the singer, accompanied by a 7-members orchestra, orchestrated by composer Kyriakos Costa. Savvina Georgiou will be the actor on stage, performing Stavros Stavrou’s original texts, under the direction of Michalis Kolokotronis.

The concert will take place at the Markideio theatre, Paphos, on the 4th of June, 20:30.
