Music – Literature
From the Odyssey in the CC Cavafy with Giorgos Kimoulis
The 2017 Pafos Organization organizes a unique artistic evening combining music and literature together.
The poetry of the KP Cavafy by the great actor Giorgos Kimoulis, gathers the nostalgia of a lost human voice, allowing the composer Thodoris Oikonomos to approach them with his music and illuminate man through passions and mistakes. Looking at Bob Wilson’s Odyssey, the lights are lowered and the music goes around Odysseus’ myth, as Thodoris Economou dreamed of. The terms “Destination” and “Odysseus” serve as interpretive keys for the Ithaca Cavafy, which begins with the recitation of Giorgos Kimoulis, before reapplying the music in order to continue the journey.
