AZMARI: Erythro’Poïesie – Listening to the “foreigner who comes”

A performative soundwalk in Athens, actors interpreting Report to Greco by Kazantzakis, carrying their path in small bags, leaving a trace of sand through the old part of Athens, together with the walkers receiving a portable bluetooth speaker, triggered by approaching locations on the trajectory. Walkers become sound carriers of imaginary and real travels in the world and time of El Greco.
