An immersive experience combining contemporary music and lighting. The audience “sneaks” into a scenery with perspective and is encouraged to interpret the abstract stimuli of sound and light in their own way. By turns one can discern outlines of humans and objects or sources of light, movement or stasis, or the light may obscure everything completely. Musicians switch positions and sides, get closer or further away; the sound constantly changes our perception of the space.
The programme includes two works in their Greek premiere and three Greek works commissioned by the Athens Epidaurus Festival: Stirrings Still Ι (2006) by Rebecca Saunders, Standing (1973) by Jo Kondo, Translucencies by Michalis Paraskakis, And Then She Saw Him by Nikos Ioakeim and Hide Behind the Curtain by Eleni Ralli.
TETTTIX (with three Ts), an initiative of Michalis Paraskakis, was founded in 2017 by a group of young musicians united in their love for contemporary music. They are noted for their eclectic combination of instruments, deviating from established formations. They aim to create a new repertoire through collaborations with Greek and international composers as well as showcasing 20th-century works.
