A selection of music theater works by pioneer Anestis Logothetis, a composer of the Greek Diaspora. In his work, Logothetis experiments with various aspects of the music theater language. Especially during the productive 1970s, Logothetis used his own language to explore the expressive limits of music theater. The works by Logothetis selected here are performed by contemporary music ensemble dissonArt, under the direction of Vasilis Noulas who is renowned for his own experimental performances.
The following works will be presented:
Expansion - Kontraktion (1960)

*As part of the festival "Music Theater Days" (June 4 - July 11, 2017).
Music theater remains one of the most misunderstood and often overlooked artistic fields in Greece. Nevertheless, for decades this art form –and especially more light-hearted versions of it– was a firm fixture of Greece’s cultural scene, attracting the attention of many composers. This year’s theme at the “Music Theater Days” is Greek avant-garde musical theater from the 1960s to the 1980s. The aim is to showcase this long-forgotten part of the country’s cultural heritage, which comes from a field that is one of the Alternative Stage’s main areas of focus.
