Combining music, singing, paintings, performing and mimicry, Shadow Theatre never fails to delight audiences, young and old.
The exhibition brings to the fore the multi-faceted personality of Kostas Manos (1902-1970), one of a handful of folk artists who essentially set the rules of the art of the Greek Karaghiozis.
Through his work and under the guidance of his son and successor, Mimis Manos, the exhibition throws light on an era in which Shadow Theatre reached its pinnacle, leaving indelible marks on modern Greek art and the modern Greek society.
At the same time, the exhibition presents a contemporary version of Shadow Theatre. To this end and in the context of the exhibition, the MUSIC laboratory of the Technical University of Crete presents for the first time in Greece its innovative research project in progress, eShadow, a digital interactive shadow theatre application inspired by the traditional Greek Shadow Theatre. eShadow aims to familiarize children with the Karaghiozis folk art as well as to build bridges of communication among different generations.
Parallel events also take place such as shadow theatre performances and screenings.
