The successful series of shows by Athos Danellis and the Athens Shadow Theater Company at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center comes to a close, with one final show at the Dome in September.
Karagiozis Becomes a Janitor
Construction contractor Ktistopoulos has just completed building his latest apartment building and seeks the right person for the position of janitor. Who could be a better candidate than the lucky Karagiozis?
Design-Implementation: Athos Danellis, Athens Shadow Play Theater Company
One of the last surviving Karagiozis puppeteers, Athos Danellis learned and loved the art and craft of Shadow Theater as an apprentice to old masters. In 1998, he founded the Greek Shadow Theater Archives for the preservation and promotion of the Greek Karagiozis history and repertoire. With his Athens Shadow Theater Company, he has performed in many festivals in Greece and other countries.
Since 1989, he has performed rarely staged plays from the obscure repertoire of the Greek Shadow Theater, alongside his original plays. He teaches Shadow Theater at the Department of Theater Studies, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
