Routes in Marpissa Festival

Return

27, 28, 29 August 2021

Marpissa, Paros

 

It is with great joy, sweet nostalgia and impatience that the festival Routes in Marpissa returns and renews its meeting with the public on August 27, 28, 29.

Having the “return” as central idea, we get back to the place and habits that we dearly missed. This August we will walk again in the traditional settlement of Marpissa in Paros, from where we have drawn for years, inspiration, food for thought, creation but also joy.

This year’s program is rich and adapted to the special conditions of the time. The festival’s visitors will be invited to discover “hidden” aspects of the place, taking part in a game for children and adults that will combine physical and digital interaction.

At the same time, thematic routes will be created in the traditional settlement: an exhibition of contemporary art curated by Despina Zefkili and lighting installations in collaboration with the BeforeLight team and the residents of Marpissa. In addition, the program includes animation screenings for afults from the Animasyros International Animation Festival, activities for children with the cooperation of Cinemathesis and Greek National Section of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) and concerts.

All events will be in line with the government’s instructions regarding the presence and safety of the public, while their online promotion through livestreaming is additionally planned.

 

Inspired by the village, accompanied by the residents and aiming at action… come and walk with us in Marpissa!
