THEATRE OF A SHOE began its activities three years ago, having, since then, marked a particularly remarkable course.Through research and study, it draws material for its productions out of the rich Greek tradition.
First production: " ZAHARAKIS , a folk fairy tale with traditional tunes and songs " , in collaboration with the writer Zoe Valasi.
It combines the folk fable with traditional songs, interpreted lively by the actors-musicians-singers, to the accompaniment of bagpipes, the fife, the accordion and percussions.
F. G. Lorka's "THE SPELL OF THE BUTTERFLY" followed , in which traditional Greek folk dances, songs and tunes mingle with the poetry of the Spanish bard.
THEATRE OF A SHOE took part in the Christmas 2003/4 festivities of the municipality of Athens with its third production "ON THE ROSE BUSH" , a theatre game-performance with Christmas carols and customs.
THEATRE OF A SHOE was invited by actress Tatiana Lygari to the train-theatre "THE TRAIN AT ROUF" for a number of shows, while recently it travelled abroad, to Belgium and Luxembourg , where it was met with favourable response.
For third year now, THEATRE OF A SHOE UPON THE TREE , is performing at "theatre FOURNOS" , taking hundreds of children to a cheerful journey on the paths of our tradition, while , at the same time, it continues visiting schools and towns all over Greece .
