EKON FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY GREEK ART - ELECTRIC WAVES

EKON FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY GREEK ART - ELECTRIC WAVES

19-20 November 2010, Riverside Studios, London 28 November 2010, Theatro Technis, London Unpack your curiosity! Sharpen your senses! Cast away the anchor and jump on board!    

The 3rd Ekon Festival presents a panorama of contemporary audio-visual productions emerging from the Greek world today. An eclectic mix of over 100 established and new performers, directors, composers, vocalists, musicians, dancers, choreographers, designers, video artists and talented individuals have come together for this fast-growing annual celebration of music, performance and multimedia; all driven by a desire to explore, to experiment, to create something new. You are set to experience a riot of a festival where nothing is left unchallenged, no carved stone unturned and the word 'greek' takes on a whole new meaning.

We are preparing to sail away to unchartered seas... at the heart of an urban landscape. We'll be taking you on a journey of exploration amid the circuits of change and transformation; of disposable images and uncertain finales; even of what lies beyond 'normality'. An electrifying journey through dance theatre, visual and live art, multi-media performance, contemporary classical music, operatic staged performance, alternative and electronic music, audio-visual experiences and musical improvisation.

Join us in the Riverside Studios Bar for our after-Festival party, on 20th November 2010, with plenty of Greek food offered to please all palates.

Saturday 20 November

Electronic Music, 19.45 Venue: Riverside Theatre, London

Greek avant-guard music from new generation Mohammad and Etten, plus special guest appearance,
in a programme that blends experimental sounds and electronics with visual elements and current technologies.

MOHAMMAD is the project of Greek musicians extraordinaire Coti K., ILIOS and Nikos Veliotis. Having all worked separately in the experimental field, they decided to join forces in order to explore the principles of inter-modulation using contra-bass (Coti K.), oscillators (ILIOS) and cello (Nikos Veliotis).
