The Odysseas Elytis Theatre

A modern, ancient-style open amphitheatre, built from local stone and cycladic marble. Host to most of the cultural events on the island since 1997.

A Happy Place

”To hold the Sun in one’s hands without being burned, to transmit it like a torch to those following, is a painful act but, I believe, a blessed one. We have need of it. One day the dogmas that hold men in chains will be dissolved before a consciousness so inundated with light that it will be one with the Sun, and it will arrive on those ideal shores of human dignity and liberty.”

Closing from Odysseus Elytis’ Nobel Lecture, December 8, 1979

Ios, 25-29 June 2015
