DIMITRIA FESTIVAL – Cityval
No more yesterday, only tomorrow
The 51st Dimitria Festival is here, with a special, and always innovative, programme, sensitive to artistic and social issues, including drama, music, literary events, visual art events, dance, cinema, performance events and workshops.
Once again this autumn, despite our introversion and the difficult times we are experiencing, the Dimitria Festival invites us and invites Thessaloniki to connect directly.
Be there! This experience, with its fine arts and technology, set against a backdrop of streets, words, images, bodies, buildings and those points on the urban map where energy and communication are to produced, where exciting new horizons will open up and where “moments” will be recorded through multiple narratives and from a range of views.
Cityval! This is our aim: a dialogue with the city through the arts, communication between people and trends, coexisting in this fragmented world and partaking in this broader horizon and perspective.
An attempt at coexistence through tuning in at 42 events, which will fearlessly venture to unite and rally Thessaloniki,
within a broad spectrum of artistic anthropogeography and unconventional viewpoints-spectacles.
Cosmopolitan, eccentric – literally and metaphorically – daring and sensitive, this year Dimitria Festival is venturing to make another “leap”, dreaming of a Thessaloniki that will not be beat. With a revisionist attotide, free of clichés, oriented to what is fresh and vibrant, yet invisible to most “at present”, this year’s Dimitria invites you to take it in through a kaleidoscopic art experience, participating in the here and now.
This may, in fact, be the definition-challenge of this year’s institution.
This city as it is today, no longer the Thessaloniki of yesterday,
nothing more than the Thessaloniki of tomorrow.
