The performance will be live broadcasted on the official YouTube channel of Eleusis European Capital of Culture and on Facebook. Eleusis European Capital of Culture colours the Clock, the monumental landmark of Eleusis that looms above the hill of the Archaeological Site, through a series of performances and interpretations of the most important texts of the Greek Literature by distinguished artists. The action known as ‘Words of the Clock” titled Mystery 2 hosts in its first edition Kariofillia Karampeti who is reciting ‘Persephone’ by Yiannis Ritsos, on Friday, October 30 at 17.07. The Performance will be live broadcasted on the official YouTube channel of Eleusis 2021 European Capital of Culture and on Facebook.

‘Persephone’ (1965) by Yiannis Ritsos, part of his poetic collection ‘Fourth Dimension’, is for the first time presented at the Archaeological Site of Eleusis, gaining thus major importance as the leading actress will be reciting in her unique voice and way of interpretation  right over the Persephone’s cave on the hill of the archaeological remains. At the same time, the Clock of the city, built in 1924, will function again and be located right a few meters away. The Clock is a landmark for Eleusis as it links two separate periods of its local history, antiquity on the one hand and its industrialization on the other.

This specific action titled ‘Mystery 2’, marks the beginning of a series of actions titled ‘Ordinary Mysteries’. ‘Ordinary Mysteries’ are artistic events viewed as ‘small celebrations’ in the everyday life of Eleusis. Residents, visitors and passers-by have the chance to live new cultural experiences, taking place in the city’s public spaces and converting Eleusis into a stage. All actions will take place keeping a safe distance due to coronavirus state of emergency.

Special thanks to Dio Kangelari about the idea of the text of Yiannis Ritsos ‘Persephone’, Eri Ritsou, daughter of the poet, for her willing and kind gesture to give us the text, and Rena Andreadaki for her constant support for all technical issues that we had to deal with during the implementation of the project!
