BATTLE OF THE YEAR BALKANS 2012
Launch: Vassiliko Theatre, 26/05/2012
Break-dance festival Battle of the Year Balkans 2012 is celebrating 10 years since it first started in our country.
This year’s festival of Βattle of the year Βalkans 2012 is a co-production with National Theatre of Northern Greece. Students of NTNG’s Drama School will present their own version, directed by Sotiris Hatzakis, NTNG’s artistic director, on Sunday 27th May, the second day of the festival.
Battle of Shake-spears, a modern version of Montague versus Capulet, will be presented by the students. It is a theatre act that entangles Shakespeare with a street dance culture and the battles of fencing with the impressive and breathtaking dance figures of battle hip- hop.
Vassiliko Theatre (26/05/2012 - 27/05/2012)
