The Culture Behind the Crisis: What You Need to Know
diVERSIONS music festival 2012
diVERSIONS 2012 was a 3-day music spectacle featuring the brilliant, the naughty, and the wild of the Greek international music scene. It brought together some of the most innovative and prominent musicians, performers and multi-media artists emerging from the Greek and international world today.
It presented an eclectic mix of electro/acoustic performances, audio experiences and visual elements that ranged from the experimental ambient and drone sounds of exceptional Spyweirdos to the electrifying, upbeat punk-funk of Berlin Brides and the orchestrated punk chaos of YIANNEIS’ indie rock and trip hop; from the harp experimentations of Maria Yerosimou to the distinctive melodies of Vassilikos and the dazzling eruptions of drum mastery by Asaf Sirkis Trio.
EKON Festival 2010
EKON Festival 2010 was a fresh venture that explored new artistic avenues. The festival presented an eclectic mix of over 100 established and new performers, directors, composers, choreographers, video artists and talented individuals.
The programme included productions that ranged from the multimedia performance by avant-guard stage director Emmanouil Koutsourelis to the dance theatre of innovative Levantes Dance Theatre; from the operatic staged performance of Shonorities group to the sound installation by poet/Intermedia artist Demosthenes Agrafiotis and experimental composers Michail Palaiologou and Gustav Andre; and from the synthetic rhythms of Etten to the electronic sounds of new generation key practinioners Nikos Veliotis, Coti K. and ILIOS.
