Shadow theater

The folk shadow theatre, which has its origins in the east, represents an original form of theatrical art.

The Greek Karaghiozis conveys the essence of folk thought and experience, and relates various events from people‘s political and social life in a way intended to amuse the audience. The Karaghiozis player, by using as means of expression speech, music, song, a screen and figures made of leather and cardboard, creates representations inspired from Greek history and mythology, from the tales of Greek folklore and from contemporary everyday life.
