Queer approaches to Lena Platonos

Tribute

Lena Platonos has been a landmark in the Greek LGBT community since the 80s. Both her lyrics, which express distinct, often lonely subjectivities, and her peculiar electro theatre music, keep on enchanting and inspiring queer music scenes and collectives across the world. The event will venture a series of queer readings of Platonos’s work.

The event is organized in collaboration with the Atopos CVC cultural organization, as part of the TextMe Lab project, and with the Athens Municipality-run “Athens 2018 World Book Capital” project, a great donor of which is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

Synopsis

In the first part, the musicologist and cultural studies theoretician Nikos Vourdoulas focuses on Platonos’s electronic song-writing, by probing into the ways in which she expresses and emotionally brings together groups of people from the Greek and the international LGBT communities.
In the second part, there will be a variety show with artists from the domestic queer music scene and in particular from the Fytini music label. Andriana Minou, Louiza Doloxa, Alexandros Drosos, Filtig, etc will present covers that reinterpret Platonos’s work at another sound, lyrics and performance level.
