The award winning Lemon performance experience in Xylokastro

The award-winning Lemon celebrates 5 years and anchors in Xylokastro!

Lemon, the performance-experience that has been witnessed by more than 15,500 spectators, celebrates 5 years of journeys throughout Greece this year! It is the story of the pianist 1900, who was born on a ship and never set foot on land.

Lemon anchors in Xylokastro and the Open Theater V. Georgiadis for a single performance this Saturday, August 19.
Melachrinos Velentzas (pianist 1900) and George Drivas (trumpeter Tim Tooney) offer us an enjoyable two-man show that oscillates between physical theater, live music, dance, and song. 70 stormy minutes of a vivid theatrical narrative that, with humor and emotion, brings to the surface the existential question:

Are you feeling happy?

They said about Lemon!

Be a co-star in this story!
Lemon is a self-funded independent production with the research goal of cultural decentralization and site-specific performances. The contribution of the audience to the continuation of this journey is very important. Through the purchase of the ecological bag “Theater exists where there are spectators,” you can also add a lemon to our production and make the journey last.
