Elias Karellas Shadow Theatre Company returns to Megaron with a new production for children. This time, the inspiration for shadow theatre player and director Elias Karellas comes from one of the key components of a shadow theatre performance – the sound. What is hidden behind the lit curtain? How can a single person give their voice to so many different figures? How can all the sounds of the performance be produced ‘live’ and how are sound and visual effects combined? On Elias Karellas’ lit curtain, we will meet the giant puppet figures of Karagianis and his friends, in a brand-new performance! Sounds of the past and sounds of the present today are mixed together in a fast-paced performance with melodies that unlock the young spectators’ imagination. Their musical companion will be Areti Ketime, who will enchant us with her voice and her santoor.
