One more production will be presented by the NTNG during 2016-2017 Theatre Season: “Salvatores Dei”
by Nikos Kazantzakis
, directed by Andreas Koutsourelis
, a flexible theatre performance that is going to be staged at selected venues, starting on 20 January.
“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life”.
A theatrical version of the famous work “Salvatores Dei” (The Saviors of God) by Nikos Kazantzakis, a text rich in meanings that expresses the metaphysical faith of the great Cretan writer. The text belongs to Kazantzakis’ early works. Kazantzakis himself has argued that “Salvatores Dei” is a Cry and his whole work a comment that expresses his anguish to overcome the borders of the mind and to solve the mystery of existence.
Α new educational programme
designed by the NTNG in collaboration with Vafopoulio Cultural Centre will start in 2017.
The programme, entitled “Thessaloniki through the eyes of G. Th. Vafopoulos”

. Its subject is Thessaloniki and how much it has changed during the last century,that is from 1917 until today, as far as its population composition, social stratification, architecture etc are concerned.

The National Theatre of Northern Greece would like to inform you that the production “Twelfth Night
