“By word of mouth: in song”

A first approach of the music tradition of Epanomi.
 “Geographically, culturally and musically in between two poles, of Chalkidiki and Thessaloniki. A music horizon with deep background and identifiable aesthetics”.


Thanassis Sakkas (teacher) and Giorgos Kokkonis (musicologist, associate professor of the Department of Traditional Music at TEI of Epirus) will speak about the publication.
Traditional folk songs of the area will be presented by the chorus of Open Centre for the Protection of the Elderly, managed by music teacher Vangelis Nanos and the chorus of the Church of the Assumption of Epanomi, managed by Maria Kalemkeridou (degree in Music Studies from Aristotle Univeristy of Thessaloniki).

“The world upside down”, by COPERNICUS theatre group
COPERNICUS theatre group is known to public for the quality children performances. After 4 performances in Athens Concert Hall, it brings the musical theatre performance “The World Upside Down” to Ktima Gerovassiliou.

Written by Angelos Angelou and Emi Sini, twice awarded with Greek Literary Award, using their famous dispositional humor, directed by Guy Stefanou and choreographed by Thanos Daskalopoulos, COPERNICUS theatre group signs once again a unique and spectacular performance for the whole family.
The story
A mis-calculation brings two strange but adorable characters, “naïve” Loudovikos and “know-it-all” Friderikos, among the audience of a children’s musical theatre performance. The two main characters, with their unique temperament, cause a series of gaffes and misunderstandings that gradually lead the action towards an uncontrollable windup. Will the famous Witch Skoupoxilanthi be able to help Friderikos make Loudovikos disappear? What do the cannibals Kama Toumba cook with Bob the Chameleon? Does a whale fit on a theatre stage? And who will dare tell the wild Pirates of Bubblegum that “All is Music”?  

The new play by COPERNICUS theatre group, based on the homonymous children’s cd “The World Upside Down” and the unpublished material of the two creators, is on by an impressive team of actors, singers and musicians that masterly combine interactive play, witty, humorous dialogue, and a lot of dancing. Children of all ages get excited and ready to turn… the World Upside Down!
