Common View, the National’s dialogue with the visual arts, continues for a forth year, exploring the arena where theatre and other art forms meet. Through this initiative, the National aims to bring theatregoers into contact with contemporary works that share some kind of ‘common view’ with its productions. It is hoped that in this way, the success of similar events at theatres and museums abroad can be emulated and that audiences will gain from the critical enjoyment of non-theatrical works.
To coincide with the National’s production of Cyrano de Bergerac and Platonov, the foyers of the Central Stage and the New Stage in the Ziller Building are hosting works by two contemporary artists who use different media to examine various aspects of the theatre: Angelos Papadimitriou and Kostis Velonis.
Curated by Eleni Koukou and Katerina Tselou
Opening: 23 March, 19:30 - 20:30- 16 April
National Theater-Ziller Building, Athens
