Sotiria Ιs Μy Νame - Sofia Adamidou
Repeat: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 04/11/2016
Launch: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 18/12/2015

A few hours before major surgery that resulted in her losing her voice, the great folk singer doesn’t stop talking about her eventful life: her early years in Chalkida, her departure for Athens a day after the outbreak of the Greek-Italian war, her cooperation with Tsitsanis, the legendary Rebetiko composer... A blend of roughness and sensitivity, present and past, love and hate, reveal an explosive personality who doesn’t lose, not even for a moment, her humour and passion for life.
