Performances dedicated to Photgrapher Nelly at Benaki Museum

(Greek News Agenda) The last performance in homage to the superb photographer Nelly will be given today at the Pireos Street Annexe of the Benaki Museum in Athens. The show in tribute of Nelly’s work entitled “Through Nelly’s gaze“, combines speech, live music and dance in a performance that brings Nelly’s life to the stage. Nelly was an eminent Greek photographer whose work introduced a whole new perspective to Greece’s cultural heritage. The idea of dedicating a series of performances to Nelly, was first initiated by the Centre Culturel Hellenique in Paris, while trying to create a performance linked to Greece’s culture. Music pieces by Kalomoiris, Mitropoulos, Chopin, Schubert, Ravel and Gershwin have been selected to accompany Nelly’s narrative.
