November 2017, Explore the worlds with us!Wednesday / November 01 / 2017
In November, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) proposes many new events and activities, from cosmology for children and an introduction to pre-Socratic philosophers through to Parabases, a new readers theater series. All these activities take place alongside our well-established number of concert series. In Jazz Chronicles, Human Touch capture the spontaneity of the moment, while Music Escapades presents the atmospheric Keep Shelly in Athens.
November brings a new readers theater series, Parabases. The first SNFCC’s production, Report in Hand, presents excerpts from Nikos Kazantzakis’s Report to Greco, curated by Efi Theodorou. In addition, a series of five lectures introduces us to pre-Socratic philosophy; the first two meetings are dedicated to Anaximander and Heraclitus. In November, too, outdoor activities, including sailing, kayaking, and family-friendly games, continue, and many new ones are being added. We look forward to dancing swing at the Social Ballroom, have a picnic with Paul Klee and company, and learn how to code. Also, a series of events promoting running keep us in sync with the city’s pulse and prepare us for the Athens Classic Marathon.
