From Odyssey to C.P. Cavafy with George Kimoulis
The Pafos2017 Organization organizes a unique artistic evening combining music and literature together.
The poetry of C.P. Cavafy narrated by the great actor George Kimoulis carries a sense of nostalgia for a human voice lost, allowing Thodoris Economou to approach it musically and shed light on man’s passions and faults. Through Robert Wilson’s Odyssey, the lights dim and the music takes us to the myth of Ulysses, as envisioned by Thodoris Economou. The terms “Destination” and “Ulysses” function as keywords for Cavafy’s “Ithaca” with which George Kimoulis begins his narration, before the music takes over in order to continue with the journey.
