Creation and Entertainment in THEATER for tourist groups

What do tourists see when they come to Greece?

Which side do they know and what they take with them as a memory?

Only ancient monuments of a civilization that belongs to all humanity?

A tremendous mythology, tradition and history?

And their acquaintance with modern Greek creation, what is it exactly?

A theater has developed a whole program specifically for the tourist groups (students and not only) that includes performances, workshops, acts, with the full participation of the visitors, with talks and discussions with the actors and offers it to the Travel Agencies and Agencies looking for a more quality guided tour of their group.

It is TOPOS ALLOU Theatre, which has created organized events either in its own theater or elsewhere (Hotels, inside and outside Athens) in the building of creative and original events, in days and hours set by the tourist offices, according to the tour group program.

These events are presented in English or in French.

With a focus on the performance “ATRIDES / ANCIENT PATHOS” (in English), workshops (masks, acting etc) are organized, which lead to small performances on the stage, with the participation of the audience and the actors. The results are amazing. The group leave excited because they were in a welcoming warm atmosphere, they saw a high-level show, participated in a creative event where it met Greek artists, spoke to them about Greek culture, theater and mythology, built with its own hands something he took with him in his country.

The performance ATRIDES / Ancient Passion is a spectacular composition of top scenes of our three tragedies, which make up the whole story of Atrides house. The contemporary directional view, the use of video in giant screens, the original music, the acting of the actors, make the theatrical experience unique. Full of potential conflict, the show, at a rapid pace, does not tire the spectators and keeps their interest alive. (Duration: 1 hour)

The performance starts from the sacrifice of Iphigeneia, until Orestes acquitted and the establishment of democracy.

Workshops

  1. Mask construction: with simple materials, the visitor build a mask under the guidance of a specialized professional dressmaker
  2. Acting and theatrical improvisation: As a participatory game with the guidance of a professional filmmaker and actor, a scene where performers enter the process of “playing” a role.
  3. Tailor made workshops: Depending on the needs of each group in consultation with the Tourist Office and the Teachers (in the case of student groups), TOPOS ALLOU theater creates interesting projects on many topics

Contact us and ask for the full detailed program, performances and seminars. TOPOS ALLOU Theater is at your disposal to discuss your own special program and the requirements of each group individually.

After this joyful party, the King Carnival began its route on the streets of the Old Town. The Carnival atmosphere and music filled the streets of Rethymno and the promenade ended at the Unknown Soldier Square, where a big tent had been placed. Thousands of people enjoyed the humorous dialogue of King Karnavalos with the “Mayor” during the “Calling and Speaking”! The video presentation and the giant 2018 poster, created by carnival participants, and the creative work prepared by graphic designer Stelios Kalogerakis was introduced to the public. The Mayor of Rethymno, Mr. Georgis Marinakis, declared the official launch of Rethymno’s Carnival 2018.

9th International Games Psiloritis Race

The race trail covers the distance that pilgrims of the sacred city of Minoan Knossos used to walk in order to climb Psiloritis mountain and honor their god, Zeus Cretagenes, who according to Ancient Greek Mythology was brought up in the cave of Ideon Andron, worship center and sanctum during the Minoan and Roman times. Today, Psiloritis Race links the myth with contemporary history as the runners will follow the traces of their ancestors on the holy mountain of Zeus Cretagenes.
The race will start on the morning of May, 28 on Nida plateau in Anogia Crete. The athletes of 35 km will reach the summit of Psiloritis (2.456).

The idea of a mountain race in Crete, with high international standards, was first born in June 2008 on Mt Olympus. Our love for the mountain Psiloritis where Zeus brought up, the promotion of the natural beauty of the area finally transformed the idea into practice .Having the support of the people who love the island and enjoy running on the mountains, we organize this event which is called the “Psiloritis Race” (PR). The event is organized with the kind support of the prefecture of Rethymno.

The International Mountain Race “Psiloritis Race” is an athletic meeting that forwards physical activity in touch with the natural environment. The race offers the opportunity to experience the unique and exciting character of the mountain along with the opportunity for the participants to experience a unique vigorous seven-hour race. That is the reason why the athletes who will try out their strength in the PR should practice the philosophy of semi autonomy, carrying a least a necessary equipment that will provide them with security and sustenance during the race ; while there will be a systematical and in regular intervals supply.

We created the PR site that will provide all the information for the race, as well as on the FaceBook, which is welcomed in ten days time by 9000 friends around the world. The webpage of the reace has more than 235,000 visitors by now. For this well-organized and innovative event the response has far exceeded all the expectations of the organizing committee which aims to attract more and more athletes every year.

Porto Katsiki beach

  • Aug 1,2017

A strip of pure white sand at the foot of a towering white rock: the picture is familiar as it was awarded the prize of the loveliest beach in Greece and appears on posters promoting tourism. To get there you go down a steep path with a hundred steps from the parking lot (with plenty of canteens) or by caique from Nydri and Vassilki.
