Permanent Costume Exhibition: Traces of the Ephemeral
Vassiliko Theatre – Foyer, 31/05/2017

The National Theatre of Northern Greece is organizing the present comprehensive, permanent costume exhibition in the light of the success of “Moments of Creation in Time”, an exhibition staged in the Aladja Imaret in October 2016, and the positive public response to both the exhibition in the ‘art windows’ of the OTE telephone company (March 2017) and the Giorgos Ziakas exhibition in the foyer of the Society of Macedonian Studies (May 2017). Part of the NTNG’s impressive costume collection will be permanently housed in the centre of Thessaloniki, where the public will enjoy easy access to it. 

Costumes of high aesthetic value, from landmark plays staged at the National Theatre of Northern Greece during the 56 years of its existence, are displayed in specially designed display cases that blend into the space of the foyer. The exhibition is curated by the set and costume designer, Ioulia Stavridou.
The exhibition comprises 80 costumes, designed by renowned Greek designers including: Giorgos Vakalo, Vassilis Vassiliadis, Spyros Vassiliou, Denny Vachlioti, Apostolos Vettas, Nikos Engonopoulos, Liza Zaimi, Giorgos Ziakas, Kleovoulos Klonis, Kenny McLellan, Ioanna Manoledaki, Giannis Metzikof, Dimitris Mytaras, Nikos Sachinis, Vassilis Fotopoulos, Dionysis Fotopoulos et al.
