MAGAM

MAGAM present their debut LP ‘One’ live for the very first time at Vitruvian Thing.
“It all began with a little red tongue sticking out of an unseen mouth and licking its way in the dark. Hesitating at first, then sparkling and crackling and all of a sudden bursting out in total, u-n-c-o-n-t-r-o-l-l-a-b-l-e freedom.”

MAGAM are George Avramidis and moody alien. Their music is mainly focused on various forms of improvisation & experimentation.

Vortex

Choreography by Maria Garefi and Margarita Symeonidou.
“Vortex” , maelstrom, eternal and continuous swirling. Is it about an inescapable confinement to the command of fate or an illusion of freedom? You whole life’s thread wraps around you and defines you up to the moment of the longed for liberation. Then you are at last independent and sole creator of your actions. Are you ready to face the consequences?

Performers: Maria Garefi, Olia Mitsiou, Margarita Symeonidou, Katerina Taitzoglou
1st choreography: Μ&Μ | 2nd choreography: Pandora’s box
Stream: synergy meeting vol.2

MUSIC

Alex Dante

Alex Dante is a Solo guitar project by Alexandros Dandoulakis. His concept is to transfer the great piano works by Frederic Chopin “Nocturnes” to the electric guitar. Inspired by the great solo works from Joe Pass and Wes Montgomery, to Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell and Kurt Rosenwinkel, Alex Dante approaches the classic “Nocturnes” in a personal and unique playing. The using of an electric guitar and special guitar effects gives a new colour to Chopin’s music and reminds jazz chord soloing, describes rock moments and creates a great musical bridge from classical music to the modern music of now.
Imago Ep.II: Symmetry
28 MAY 2017
SCREENING

Imago Ep.II: Symmetry + In Side Out

One more screening of Imago Ep.II: Symmetry, the awarded videodance/narrative experimental short film directed by Dani Joss. Starring Drosia Triantaki, Constantinos Katsamakis, Nana Kouli, with Luke Prodromou. Mind games, metaphors, and nested storylines inform a narrative unique to the cinedance genre, in effect using sci-fi thriller conventions to inform the essay on the clash of postmodernism and neoromanticism at its heart.

Also showing all three parts of Fenia Kotsopoulou's In Side Out, the first of which was shown and was an audience favourite at Locus 17|a, and Imago Ep.I: Orientation!

THE VENUE

Vitruvian Thing panorama

Art space, contemporary dance stage, live music venue, audiovisual studio. Home of the fuzzy mind and the experimentally inclined psyche. And Die Wolke Art Group’s headquarters.

Inside the 130 sq.m. space one finds a theatrical stage with an arsenal of audiovisual technology supporting it, an electronics lab, an editing/color grading/VFX workstation, sound and lights, a 5m projection screen, cameras, and a host of sensor and controller apparatus. Also a small number of people that are adept at utilising the aforementioned implements to creative effect. Vitruvian Thing is intended to host all kinds of experimental activities, collaborations, and educational events: dancetheatre performances, live music, film projections, installations, theatre, talks, exhibitions.

Events at Vitruvian Thing are invariably underscored by our philosophy of quality and respect towards audience and artists. The venue, as well as its managing group Die Wolke, is a non-profit endeavour (Die Wolke is a registered non-profit company).

Address: Ptolemaeon 29A, inside the throughway, 4th floor, 54630, Thessaloniki.

Αdmittance by unspecified contribution policy

At Vitruvian Thing, we acknowledge the difficult financial circumstances of this period. So, unless otherwise noted, admittance to the events we host entails an unspecified amount: you decide how much the ticket should be and, in doing so, you are supporting the artists and helping Die Wolke keep the venue running. At the entrance, we issue donation coupons to acknowledge your contribution, equivalent to receipts, as required by law.

So, upon arrival at Vitruvian Thing and checking in at the welcome desk, you can choose your own price of admission: literally as much as you think is just right for you. You receive your coupon, and enjoy the show.

WATCH

Vitruvian Thing seats 50 people in four rows. Most shows have multiple times/dates, so reservations are necessary to help us manage attendance.

We make it a point to start on time, to break the vicious circle of showtime delays that encourage belated arrivals and so on.

We recommed that you subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed. Social networks no longer work as they should for most people. We will never abuse your email address!

PERFORM

We are always looking for interesting performances to host, that meet our mission statement: high quality, forward thinking art; experimental, innovative ideas by contemporary artists; cross-disciplinary, intermedial technique; including, but certaily not limited to, dancetheatre, contemporary experimental/electroacoustic music, performance art.

The stage is about 37 sq.m. of black, antivibrational, with computer-controlled lighting, wide projection area, sound system, etc.

PROJECT

Vitruvian Thing makes a great independent mini-cinema! The projector produces a high-contrast, 5m wide, image, directly on white wall. The stereo sound system is full range and plenty powerful.

Every spring we host Locus, an anti-fest of experimental films, videodance/videoart works, and animation, by Thessaloniki-based creators.

It is also possible to book the venue for premieres, presentations, or other projection events. We’re always excited to meet and talk to innovative filmmakers that want to show their work.

WORK

The space is bookable as a studio for seminars, workshops, rehearsals, video shooting sessions, general-purpose experimentalism, or any other purpose, with or without staff.

We also host Occam’s Sharpener, the post-production unit responsible for the visual effects in Imago, as well as various other visual media and programming projects.
