OPHELIA QUARTET in Attis Theatre

Attis Theatre in conjuction with the European Cultural Centre of Delphi present the music performance Ophelia Quartet, on October 11, 12 and 13, 2013, with free admission. The performance is included in the project "With exquisite music, with voices- 150 years anniversary from the birth of K.P.Kavafis- P.E.P. Attiki- ESPA 2007-2013".

The poetry of three upmost poets of 20th century, K.P. Kavafis, Arseni Tarkofski and Heiner Muller, is transformed into a music performance in gour acts by the talented composer Panagiotis Velianitis and interpeted by the internationally leading russian singer Natalia Pschenitschnikova. Natalia Pschenitschnikova is highly acclaimed for her interpretations in works of contemporary music avant-garde composers, like Giacinto Scelsi and John Cage.

The fear towards everyhing that is bold and nw is depicted in the poem "Windows" by K.P.Kafavis.
The confinement and the suicidal obsessions emerge in the poem "Walls" by Konstantinos Kavafis.
The conflict of eroticism and creativity with the fatalistic acceptance of the destiny emerge in the poem «The first dates" by Arseni Tarkofski.
Finally, the ultimate liberation through death is the subject of  «Ophelia» at the 2nd and 5th part of «Hamletmachine» by Heiner Muller.

Particular (recorded) sounds- animal roars, war sirens and sounds of machines - are combind with purely electronical sounds, creating a sonic environment in constant interaction with the human voice. The sound elaboration is live through the interactive application Opticoacoustic Reactor, wich was created by the composer in MAX/MSP & Jitter environment.

Theodoros Terzopoulos supervises the performance, while the costume of Natalia Pschenitschnikova is designed by LOUKIA.
