Accessible “Spyridoules” on the 10th and 11th of July

Updated: Jan 23


Universally accessible performance at the Athens Epidaurus Festival.

Location: 260 Peiraios Str. - Venue E


For the third consecutive year, ATLAS E.P. provides accessibility services for the Athens Epidaurus Festival. Following the amazing productions we have undertaken as part of the Festival, this year’s addition is the performance “Spyridoules” by Nefeli Maistrali, directed by Thanasis Zeritis and Harry Kremmydas.


Through the music of Thrax Punks, the group 4frontal unravels the story of 12-year-old maid Spyridoula, that shook the public during the 1950s due to the torture she endured at the hands of her masters at Piraeus.

The creators bring on stage the voices of those women who found or still find themselves at a position of being exploited as “foster daughters”, at an accessible format on the 10th and the 11th of July with:


-     Audio description for equal access to the visual channel of communication

-     Simultaneous interpreting in the Greek Sign Language

-     Surtitling in Greek and English for the purposes of equal linguistic and sensory access


In both accessible performances on the 10th and the 11th of July, a free tactile tour will take place, which will begin at 20:15 at the entrance of Venue E at 260 Peiraios Str.

 

On the 10th of July, right after the performance, a discussion will take place titled: Preventing Violence against Domestic Workers in collaboration with the European Network Against Violence, which will be rendered accessible with the services of ATLAS E.P.
