The children’s-teenagers’ play "A cyclist changes the world" by Argyro Tamvakou and Panagiotis Lambis, is part of the Ministry of Culture’s “All of Greece, One Culture 2023" programme, which this year is dedicated to the environment.


Research has shown that cycling, compared to driving, saves 150 grams of CO2 per kilometre and is undoubtedly one of humanity's best hopes for a zero-carbon future. With this in mind, the Tik Tak Do team presents an original musical fairy tale with an adventurous plot for children, inspired by the only bicycle manufacturer in Greece, Giorgos Vogiatzis. 

In the performance "A cyclist changes the world", Diagoras uses a bicycle for his daily commute. One day, he meets the Mayor and they make a bet: If Diagoras cycles around Europe, the Mayor will build bike lanes! So begins a journey full of adventures and unpredictable encounters! A musical fairy tale as an enchanting tour of the characteristics and traditions of European cultures and a highlight of the benefits of green transport.
