Poros Arts Festival – Two one-act plays by Iakovos Kampanellis

24 June 23

The two extraordinary one-act plays of the great Greek playwright Iakovos Kampanellis “Η Μυστική Ζωή του Γουόλτερ Μίττυ” (free adaptation of James Thurber’s short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) and “Ο Πανηγυρικός” (The Panegyric) will be presented in a single performance, on Saturday, June 24th at 9 pm at the municipal Syggrou open theater, directed by Katerina Polychronopoulou and performed by Dimitris Fragkioglou. The theatrical performance takes place as part of Poros Arts Festival, which this year is organized by Katheti in collaboration with Poros Municipality. In all the events of this year’s Poros Arts Festival, money will be collected for the support of nine-year-old Valeria.

Walter Mitty has found a way to escape the monotony and tedium of his daily life by becoming the hero of his own dreams. Reality and imagination interweave, creating an exquisite stage play.

“Ο Πανηγυρικός” (The Panegyric) is a bitter comedy. During the dictatorship period, the Mayor of a small provincial town has been appointed, not elected. On the day he considers to be the most important of his life, he drives himself to a self-destructive behaviour, to his downfall and ridicule.

A play that, even though it is about a specific period of our modern history, remains tragically relevant. With a deep sense of humanity, Iakovos Kambanellis creates another unique character, commenting on the timeless Greek pathogens.

Katheti’s choral ensemble will open the performance with music and song lyrics by Iakovos Kampanellis from the play “Παραμύθι χωρίς όνομα” (Fairytale Without Name).

With its actions, such as the theatrical performances “Ο Ραφτάκος των Λέξεων” (The Small Tailor of Words), “Πέρασμα” (Passage), and “Ιστορία ενός σκύλου που τον έλεγαν πιστό” (The Story of a Dog Called Faithful), Katheti aims to set in motion the creativity already existing in the local community as well as to support and strengthen local cultural expression.

In all the events of this year’s Poros Arts Festival, money will be collected for the support of nine-year-old Valeria.
