Dance, music and art: cultural variety on the agenda in Halandri

A Greek premiere by America’s Complexions dance group, an exhibition of Yiannis Tsarouchis works and a concert with Giorgos Hadzinassios are just some of the events the Halandri Municipal Arts Center has scheduled for the next two months. The program begins on Friday and Saturday with the Triptych of Modern Dance, featuring three Greek dance companies: Choreftes with the piece «Wistful… if,» Sinequanon with their latest production, «Secret Dinner,» and Oktana with Constantinos Rigos’s «Autumn.» On February 18, composer Hadzinassios will give a special concert titled «Musical Touch to the Soul,» which he will follow up with another one-night-only performance on March 2, accompanied by the ERT Contemporary Music Orchestra. The next event on the agenda is the March 9 opening of the Tsarouchis exhibition, comprising works from the Dimitris Tsitouras Collection from 1936-1989. The exhibition will run to April 6. The acclaimed Complexions dance group will give three performances from March 18-20, led by artistic directors Dwight Roden and Desmond Richardson, both hailed as two of the greatest choreographers to emerge from the Alvin Ailey dance company. Last, but not least, pianist Alexandra Papastefanou will give a recital of works by Bartok, Ravel and Debussy, among others, on March 23. Halandri Municipal Arts Center, 53 Garyttou, tel 210.639.3341.
