ATHENS – Our Cultural Park is an educational institution for children and adults that promotes the Arts and Culture. Through the various actions of the Park we aim at the preservation and strengthening of Greek Culture and at the awareness, appreciation and participation of the preservation of Greek heritage.
Celebrating, thus, the 200 years since the Greek Revolution and the struggle for Freedom, the Cultural Park prepares and will present an original modular theatrical play for children through which we will watch the beginning of the Revolution of 1821, the thieves and their prey, the Friends, the Philhellenes and the Fighters.
This play, entitled The Flag of My Homeland Is Colored Blue, directed by Reina Eskenazy and written by Sofia Sotiriou, has a pedagogical and educational character through the experiential approach to History, Art and Music, with the aim of providing an anthropocentric approach to historical events.
The play will be streamed online during the last week of March, will tour Greece during the summer, and will be performed at Gloria Theater from October-December 2021.
A few words about the Play:
The story that unfolds through the eyes of a child, conveys to us the mischievousness and the concerns of the children of the time – which do not differ from those of the children of the modern era, the life of the free Greeks of the mountains, the value of Art and the contribution of Philhellene painters, such as Eugene Delacroix and others, to the success of the struggle. Through folk music and elements of interaction as well as the use of modern audiovisual media, the actors in the play seek to create a perfect performance, so that spectators of all ages can experience history in a different dimension, unraveling its known and unknown aspects.
