Postindustrial rural paths
with Emilia Bouriti

5–6:30 pm
Old Library, Athens School of Fine Arts, Pireos 256, Athens

A presentation of a site-specific performance, created in the fields of the industrial city of Aspropyrgos, with the collaboration of local farmers and the participation of the audience. The project was inspired by the postindustrial rural era of the city, the agricultural land, and the cultivation of the food for the development of a participatory performance.

In the presentation, the farmers speak about their experience with the artwork. Traditional women farmers sing agricultural songs in Greek and in the Arvanitiki language (an old oral language).

The presentation includes audiovisual work with English subtitles.
