This year’s Naxos Festival focuses on an “Environment of Life and Culture” and comes power packed with a series of high quality events, as always. The Festival is being held at the impressive Bazaios Tower and will run to September.
Opened last Saturday with the exhibition “Offerings of Worship,” the Festival is jointly organized by the Aion Cultural Organization and the Benaki Museum. The exhibition features works by Dimitris Talaganis, who has applied traditional techniques of religious votive offerings (engraving on a metal surface) to his modern creations. His creations highlight the influence of votive works in art. You can also see photographs by Maria Houlaki.
Starting tomorrow the next series of events features a three-day tribute to writer Dimitris Dimitriadis and the first presentation of his trilogy “Ulysses - Ithaca – Homer,” followed by a Balkan jazz concert by Mode Plagal on August 4 and Mania Papadimitriou’s music/theater performance “Grandma’s Smile” on August 6. The Athens Festival theater production “The Philosopher” with Roula Pateraki will go on stage on August 12, among other riveting performances.
