MUSIC VILLAGE 2021 August 2021Aghios Lavrentios Pelion Greece
Every summer since 2006, Music Village Arts Community transforms the medieval village of Aghios Lavrentios into a place of symbiosis through art, music performance and education, settled in a natural and architectural habitat of outstanding beauty.
Music Village is organised by arTree, a civil non profit partnership, supported by Demieriada Metropolis, the Local Society of Aghios Lavrentios, and the Greek Ministry of Culture.
This year, there will be 16 symbiotic workshops coordinated by instructors with rich artistic, scientific and educational background, experts on sound, movement and theatre. All these workshops and projects will take place the last two weeks of August, bringing the art of sound in contact with the human body, technology, music production, theatre, dancing, speech, folk and intellectual oral tradition and improvisation. These subjects will inspire various and symbiotic projects, live performances and spontaneous events, as every year happens.
With great impatience, cheerfulness and expectation for live symbiosis, we invite students, professionals of the performing arts together with researchers in humanities and teachers, to take part in the Music Village workshops, collaborative events, lectures and residencies during the summer. In addition like every other year, Music Village is open to all friends and art lovers who desire to experience the artistic coexistence and osmosis during these days in Aghios Lavrentios.
Last but not least, be sure that the production team will take all the necessary precautions regarding the COVID-19/SARS -2 pandemic dictated by the Greek Ministry of Health.
