Quality art for everyone. Hellenic Festival or as it is called in Greece Athens Festival, is focused in highlighting Greek creativity and at the same time is open in new creative projects of foreign artists, cause only if you are in touch with the artwork of others, one country’s art can be strong enough with its own identity.
World premieres, co-productions with major foreign festivals, well-known artists, orchestras, contemporary dance, visual arts. Greek Festival is the ultimate art project for Greek cultural summer.
Apart from the magnificent Odeon Of Herodus Atticus (Herodion) at the shadow of Acropolis and the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, Greek Festival transformed a former industrial space into a multi-cultural center now called “Pireaus 260”. Also the LittleTheatre of Epidaurus and “The Caravan” presenting theatrical plays in Athens streets.
