On the occasion of a unique performance in support of METAdrasi, based on the work of Souris, a satiric Greek poet, our team at the Non-formal Education Center in Chios* dedicated a lesson to his poetry.
A member of our team recounts:
“We gathered all students aged 9-14. We selected the poem “O Pehnidiaris” (Playful). The children were thrilled! At first, we only read the first five verses and encouraged our students to imagine the rest. The children commented on the poem and discussed the different games and their forms as well as the way they affect our lives. Then, they all together created a collage of drawings”.
Don’t miss the special performance on Monday, 18th of February, at Pallas theatre! You will have the chance to get aquainted with Souris’ satirical poetry, through the music of Paschalis Tonios and the artists Myrto Alikaki, Grigoris Valtinos, Mary Vidali, Kostas Voutsas, Giannis Zouganelis, Nikoletta Karra, Ilias Logothetis, Antonis Loudaros, Betty Maggira, Michalis Marinos, Dimitra Matsouka, Ieroklis Michailidis, Alexandros Bourdoumis, Panagiotis Petrakis, Marianna Polychronidi, Gerasimos Skiadaresis, Nikitas Tsakiroglou, Petros Filipidis, Pavlos Haikalis, Antigoni Psihrami and Nivo Nikos Vourliotis, accompanied by an orchestra and two choirs, directed by Megaklis Vintiadis, with Dimitris Makalias as host.
