BAND-ages: …to Victory
Vassiliko Theatre
Written & directed by: Christos Papadimitriou
Opening: Saturday 29/4/2017
The “BAND-ages”, NTNG’s youthful group, are back with a new revue. They embark on a journey through time, travelling backwards and foreword in history, always guided by laughter. Performances start on 29 April and last all summer long.

The “BAND-ages”, popular and loved among the audiences of Thessaloniki, came back last year, after a long absence, with the production “P.I.G.S. Resurrection”. Now they prepare for new on-stage adventures.  

Τhey occupy Vassiliko Theatre’s stage, in the beginning of Spring with new members added to the group in order to establish a new colony of laughter. Their main “weapons” are quick dialogues, playful orchestrations and cheerful choreographies.

Christos Papadimitriou takes on the new venture of the team. He says: “The saga of the Greek crisis is ongoing and is generously offering material for tragicomic rhapsodies to be written”.
Welcome to Greece. The BAND-ages are playing.
Where the defeated dance, laughter and crying await.
