Food – Traces of history in the teeth of the working class
In collaboration with the Piraeus Municipal Theatre

Organization: Piraeus Dental Association

Group: Mobile dental care units in Piraeus

 

A performance in a public space featuring a mobile dental care unit. The performance will incorporate various narrative aspects (epidemiological studies, testimonies by professionals, historical accounts), relating the recent socio-economic history through mouth hygiene, emphasizing the constant and continuous struggle for social progress.




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 educationa, 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.
