Greek designer stitches together ‘The Thread’ production at Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus




Internationally acclaimed British choreographer Russell Maliphant, Greek composer Vangelis and London-based Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou have joined their formidable forces in “The Thread,” a production inspired by the story of Ariadne which marries the two seemingly incongruous worlds of Greek mythology and contemporary dance. Eighteen Greek dancers, six trained in folk dancing, the rest in ballet and contemporary dance, portray a new vision of movement for today’s audiences.

Following a successful European tour and a show at the Epidaurus Ancient Theater last summer, “The Thread” is coming to the Athens Concert Hall for a series of performances from November 20 to 24 as well as December 3 and 4.
