Honour to the Greek Drama Master Karolos Koun

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    A century has elapsed since the birth of Karolos Koun (1908-1987) and the Benaki Museum is hosting an exhibition in honour of the emblematic figure of the Greek theatre. The exhibition aims at highlighting the charismatic personality of Koun and presenting his creative progression, his aesthetic choices, as well as his influences by Greek and foreign artists. The exhibition traces a career spanning 45 years, starting from his performances at his experimental “Theatro Technis” (Art Theatre), until his last performance in 1987.
