Remembered by many generations of readers over the past 120 years, the tragic, unforgettable character of Frankojannou, the heroine of Alexandros Papadiamantis’ novella The Murderess, who jumps off cliffs and crosses steeps paths in an attempt to escape her pursuers, is now restored to her natural habitat, a country landscape, coming alive through Alkinoos Ioannidis’ music. The musician’s voice is an instrument in itself, but he also plays several instruments and performs their recording and playback in real time, using the technique of live looping.

The popular singer-songwriter conjures a sonic universe in which the atmospheric universe of Papadiamantis’ novella unfolds. In the first part of the performance, the last two chapters of the remarkable novella are set to music, opening a dialogue between three soloists at the crossroads of literature, music, narrative and theatre, a combination of Papadiamantis’ world and modern technology. In the second part, new arrangements of popular Ioannidis songs will be reinterpreted through live looping.

Sound engineers: Vangelis Lappas, Vasilis Drougas
Lighting design: Konstantinos Alexiou
