Did you know that?
Greek Shadow Theatre has reached a two hundred year old tradition. With Ottoman references combined with locally developed characters, it was established at its peak as the most popular form of entertainment.
Karagiozis, the protagonist, is an authentic folk hero and the depiction of the folk spirit, which continues to bring laughter and entertain audiences of all social classes and ages.
The Shadow Theater of Athanassiou brothers was founded in 1982 by the brothers Kostas, Ioannis, Argyris and Helen, after years of apprenticeship with the late Karagiozi teacher Giorgos Haridimos. From 1993 he organizes seminars for teachers and pupils on "The shadow theater as a pedagogical tool", as well as travels to give performances in Europe, Kanada and Australia.
