On Sunday, October 6th and every Sunday at 12pm, Mikros Notos Theater Company will bring on Michael Cacoyannis Foundation’s stage, Antonis Papatheodoulou’s book “O Raftakos ton Lexeon” by Metaichmio Publications, in a new theatrical adaptation by Tina Yotopoulou, directed by Yorgos Tzavaras, original music by Nikos Platyrachos and artistic management by Chryssa Diamantopoulou.
“O Raftakos ton Lexeon” is a modern fairy tale that that has won the heart of both children and adults. It is a tender, touching and as relevant today as ever story that talks about love, the power of words, the warmth and comfort they offer and the need for communication.
Mikros Notos Theater Company brings to life this favorite book of both children and adults. Using pure “ingredients” – live music, movement, interaction, pantomime – Mikros Notos Theater Company creates a “handmade” show that is warm and colorful, like the Tailor’s blanket that covers and warms up everyone in his town.
STORY: Once upon a time in a small town that looked like a village, there was a tailor that was one of a kind. He was unique not only because there was no other tailor in town but because he would create clothes with words! He would carefully select the suitable words for each resident so everyone was kept warm during the winter and cool during the summer. However, the time went by, the town grew in size into a big city and people became hasty and forgetful. Therefore, they forgot about the Little Tailor. And then there was a winter so heavy, that their new clothes couldn’t keep them warm. It was only then that they remembered the Little Tailor who knitted words in such a beautiful way in his handmade clothes. Those clothes brought their lost warmth back. Because it is the words that keep us warm, that refresh and comfort our hearts.
Mikros Notos Theater Company presents, from October onwards, its new production”O Raftakos ton Lexeon” (The Little Tailor of Words) for open audiences and school visits at Michael Cacoyannis Foundation.
