NEON invites you to the opening of the site-specific installation The Performance by Athens-based artist Zafos Xagoraris, curated by Katerina Gregos as part of CITY PROJECT 2016. The artist takes a historic theatre performance Our Great Circus as his point of departure. The play was written by the Greek poet, playwright, screenwriter, and novelist Iakovos Kambanellis and was performed in 1973 at the Athinaion theatre.
The location of the installation is a car park just behind the now derelict site of the former Athinaion theatre. The public project will be completed in spring 2017 together with a film and publication. Passersby will unexpectedly experience a spectacular installation, a moment of recognition followed by suspension of disbelief bridging past and present.
CITY PROJECT is an initiative for public art and the city, conceived and commissioned annually by NEON. NEON aims to activate public and historical places through contemporary art, contributing to the interaction of art, society and the city.
