Stamatis Kraounakis and the Speira Speira group return in Ïctober & November to MCF with the musical act "The True Apology of Socrates" by Costas Varnalis, directed by Enke Fezollari

The “True Apology of Socrates”, this political act, returns from Thursday 23 October to Sunday 16 November 2014 at the Theatre Hall of the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation. In order the poet’s message be spread everywhere. The “Apology of Socrates” is a fierce and fiery work; cynical, fun and sweet, a blend of lyricism and sarcasm. The performance focuses on the eruptive character of Socrates as created by the great Greek poet, Costas Varnalis. It is with this character that the Greek composer and this-time actor, Stamatis Kraounakis, identifies. An apology, recital. A musical street theatre. Stamatis Kraounakis plays the Varnalic Socrates. The artists of Speira-Speira share with him the words of Varnalis, sometimes as students, sometimes as thieves, sometimes as future generations, as prosecutors, as the people, as little Socrates’. Magnificantly they sing the lyrical and epic odes, set to music by Aris Vlachos. As director and guide, Enke Fezollari.
