11 July 2020 · Athens

Venue Details

Epidayros

Small Theater in Ancient Epidavros

Palaia Epidayros

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change

Savina Yannatou and Primavera en Salonico are inspired by Ariel’s song in Shakespeare’s The Tempest (“Of his bones are coral made / Those are pearls that were his eyes”) to create Watersong, a musical performance featuring songs about water and desert, life and death, fertility, magic, desire, and purification. The artists are joined by Tunisian singer Lamia Bedioui, whose distinctive voice will transport the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus to the realm of the desert.

The Arabic language and the Bedouin dialect will cross paths with Mediterranean languages. Oud, kanonaki, ney, violin, accordion, percussion, waterphone and contrabass are the instruments accompanying the vocals, combining traditional influences with free improvisation. Traditional and Renaissance songs from several countries are mixed together, spinning tales about water and its power, about the life that water can both give and take away. Songs about rain, the sea, rivers, tears, drops; water on the body; the body into the water; ultimately, our body.

Musicians: Savina Yannatou vocals, Lamia Bedioui vocals, Primavera en Salonico: Kostas Vomvolos kanonaki, accordion, Kyriakos Gouventas violin, Harris Lambrakis ney, Kostas Theodorou percussion, waterphone, Yannis Alexandris oud, guitar

Video animation: Kleopatra Korai

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. Traditional and Renaissance songs from several countries are mixed together, spinning tales about water and its power.
