Nikos Kalamo offers to present to classes of Greek Studies and to broader audiences at your University or your Cultural Center, in the form of an on-stage monologue, three different Greek works:
(1) The brief masterpiece in prose by the Greek national poet Dionysios Solomos, The Woman of Zakynthos;
(2) “Homer’s Odyssey, First Rhapsody”, in the (modern Greek) translation of Professor Dimitris Maronitis (the well known Homeric scholar);
(3) Paris Tacopoulos’ modern play The Pre-Last of the Monikins, presented (in English) at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival of 2005 in nine performances, and at the London Festival of 2009 — with great success.
The first two works would be performed in Greek; the third can be performed in either Greek or English.
