Debate

Europe is in the midst of a crisis. How do the artists react in such a context?

Since 2008, Greece has suffered the worst economic, political and cultural crisis the country has experienced since the fall of the military junta in 1974. The economic difficulties have undermined the political and economic stability of the country, leading to a dramatic situation for the Greek people.


The artistic and cultural sectors have also been severely affected and yet, the artists keep creating theatre plays, dance shows and music. Many of these projects are in fact directly inspired by the crisis.
