On August 27 and September 14 and 23, the 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture presents Mystery 67 Amoli – Demeter and agricultural cultivation in the post-industrial Thriasian Field, in Elefsina and Aspropyrgos respectively. A project by the researcher, visual and performance artist Emilia Bouriti and the artistic platform “Syn+Ergasia” that focuses on the creation of a network and exchanges between the rural communities of the region and is the official proposal of the Municipality of Aspropyrgos for 2023 Eleusis.

“Amoli” for the farmers of Aspropyrgos means the water channel that irrigates the agricultural crops. Mystery 67 Amoli includes, among other things, a walking tour of the farms, participation of the public in agricultural work, such as harvesting peanuts and planting fruit and vegetables, storytelling, traditional music, Albanian songs, performance, visual installation, screenings, presentation of the documentary “100 years of agriculture life in Aspropyrgos” as well as a meeting between the rural communities of the Thriasian Field. The actions conclude with the presentation by researchers of the HME-PROPE PADA Laboratory of the issues of the energy transition in rural communities and the challenges of water use for the farmers of the Triasian field.

It is a multifaceted reference to the rural Goddess Demeter, the patroness of agriculture, who despite the different stages of development of the Triassic field never left it. It is alive not as a myth but as a reality since the plain has been systematically cultivated since ancient times until today. The crucial message of the work is that food and the connection of man with the earth is a timeless element not only of survival but also of cultural heritage. An element that must be preserved and have its protected space in the ever-changing Thriasian Field.

Using modern art, participation, experiential knowledge and science as tools, Mystery 67 Amoli approaches the rural communities of the two cities, Elefsina and Aspropyrgos, unfolding their cultural heritage, transforming the rural landscape into a field of new possibilities.

Meeting of the Arvanites of Elefsina, Aspropyrgos, Magoula and Mandra with the aim of getting to know each other, and learning Arvanitic songs to the participants.
