In their latest production, Anastasis and Spyridoula invite you into their creative process. You will see them in actual rehearsal conditions; interrupting each other, modifying, repeating and examining the music of Yannis Konstantinides, a 20th century composer born in Smyrna (Izmir), on the coast of present-day Turkey.
The composer, escaping wars and disasters during his early years, found refuge in Europe where, he shaped his musical style, constantly adapting to new environments. He later moved to Greece where, due to his versatility, became a successful theatre musician, popular in song-writing and well-respected in contemporary music circles.
Narrating his life story, singing his songs, and sharing their own personal stories, the two musicians explore their need for expression and how to fulfil it, within societal boundaries and expectations. What it means to create and what it takes to resist conformity.
