Sissy Doutsiou performs NEKTAR at Thessalian Poetry Festival
NEKTAR is a multimedia spoken word performance
by Sissy Doutsiou dedicated to Love and Freedom.
The Thessalian Poetry Festival started its course in 2013 when it was organized for the first time in Larissa, in the context of the celebration of World Poetry Day. With years, it became a 7-days-long event with international participation held in 4 cities in Thessaly: Larissa, Volos, Trikala, and Karditsa.
Since the beginning, Thraka has been consistently organizing the Festival, and now it is organized by Thraka and the Deputy Mayor of Culture and Science of the Municipality. We often collaborate with other cultural institutions from Thessaly, such as Thessalian Theatre, Diachronic Museum, Museum of Millos, Union of Visual arts “8”, The French Institute in Larissa, and OffArt Dance Theatre, thus connecting poetry with music, dance, and painting.
During the festival, two awards are being awarded: Lakis Machanas for the great contribution to literature in Greece, and the Thraka award for the best unpublished poetry manuscript, which guarantees the publishing of the winning book by Thraka.
