Absence - Evening of Poetry

24 May 2012, evening of poetry, Hellenic American Union Theater, Athens.

The visual art exhibition ‘Absence’ was accompanied by an evening of poetry with the same subject as a result of the processes of the interdisciplinary team:

  • Fey Zika
  • Louiza Karapidaki
  • Konstantina Katrakazou
  • Thanassis Hatzopoulos

The actors Marissa Triantaphylides and Vassilis Karampoulas read poems of absent poets on ‘absence’.

Along with them twenty three contemporary Greek poets gave floor to ‘absence’ and ‘showed’ through their readings that they keep depicting it in their poetry with their poetic presence, in a polymorphous cosmos of poems, where ‘absence’ takes the most unexpected forms in order to ‘emerge’.

The following poets read their poems:

Katerina Agelaki-Rook, Dimitris Agelis, Athanassios Alexandridis, Charis Vlavianos, Michael Ganas, Zefi Daraki, Dimitris Eleftherakis, Yianis Zervas, Dimitris Kosmopoulos, Maria Kyrtzaki, Maria Laina, Christopher Liontakis, George Markopoulos, Kostas Mavroudis, Alexander Milias, George Blanas, Kostas Papageorgiou, Kalia Papadaki, Titus Patrikios, Alexandra Plastira, Antony Fostieris, Thanassis Hatzopoulos, Dimitra Christodoulou.

Arrangement, editing: Thanassis Hatzopoulos
