The Twin Mothers is a contemporary music theater piece based upon a true story of 19th century in the area of Magazia, Paxoi. In this story, two women unify their fates in a difficult life journey and the narrative is turned into a parallel theatrical monologue. The work embodies contemporary mixings of greek traditional songs, coming from various areas of  Greece, as well as new pieces written for a polyphonic group, drums and a small chamber music group. The performance “The Twin Mothers” will be presented as the result of an intensive workshop-based process, with the participation of musicians of different age and professional groups.
