Argyro Chioti

Point of Refreshment


Can we reverse our view of the world for a moment? See beyond the world of matter? A special place on the border between myth and reality, inhabited by fantasies and ghosts, is invited to be discovered by the polyphonic composition created for the Festival by Argyro Chioti, with a mixed group of performers, consisting of actors, dancers, and singers.

Metaphysical stories and legends inspire a narrative that claims a return to myth. On stage, an existential place of ‘refreshment’ is generated. A place where souls gather to quench their thirst, amidst visions and spirits of nature, questioning the relationship between the individual and the collective.

grape – Greek Agora of Performance is an initiative by the Athens Epidaurus Festival aiming to establish a platform for Greek artists to communicate with the international Theatre and Dance scene, giving them the opportunity to present their works to representatives and artistic directors of international festivals and cultural institutions abroad. For 2024 the platform presents 8 productions during 21 – 25 July.

grape is open to the general public and is part of the main artistic programme of the Athens Epidaurus Festival. The performances included are also scheduled on dates outside the duration of the platform.
