ARTéfacts Ensemble

For the opening concert of the festival, ARTéfacts Ensemble based in Athens present the 2014 programme THIVA 102 km. In the initial phase of this project supervised by the EU Project PAROL! Writing and art beyond walls, beyond borders, inmates of the women’s prison at Thiva recorded sounds of their everyday life and sent them to six European composers selected by the ensemble; the six works that are performed were written on the basis of these sound recordings. The six pieces are played without intermission composed together in one performance. The ensemble presented these finalized compositions actually in the prison at Thiva and released a disc.


Prior to the concert (6PM), there is a workshop in which the musicians initiate the audience interactively into the riddles of the pieces to be performed.
