Exhibition: “The Birds”

The Piraeus Municipal Theatre will host an exhibition of the poet and photographer Kostas Zafeiropoulos, in collaboration with the National Library of Greece. The portraits featured in the exhibition focus, with a poetic sensibility, on the expressive faces of people experiencing harsh conditions, with particular emphasis on their look. A look revealing pain, agony, their experiences without however exacting an emotional involvement from the spectator; an overall metaphor encapsulating the Humankinds project.

 

Opening hours: 11:00-20:00




Humankinds, a programme of events organized by the Piraeus Municipal Theatre and its artistic director, Nikos Diamantis, taps into the rich reserve of values, lived history and personal testimonies found across the various communities of Piraeus. Artistic groups from different fields (theatre, literature, visual arts, artistic education, music) collaborate with social institutions in Piraeus, approaching select social groups. Together with the participants, they design and present a work conveying their own outlook of life through their own perspective.

The Holy Bible as the context

The programme is structured around the fundamental human values pervading all civilizations and constituting the moral, ontological and existential heritage of humanity, beyond any cultural, geographical, historic and other distinctions. The Holy Bible is the foundational text of dissemination and bequeathing of these values in the West. Every event included in the programme will be enriched by a Biblical text, illuminating the content and values of the event.
