Railway Carriage Theatre



A symbolic journey by train from ancient to modern Greece

Following successful tours in Australia and Brussels, the powerful one woman show, Women of Passion, Women of Greece returns to Athens for a third season.

An old wagon is transformed into a theatrical stage, where the mythological figure of ancient Greek tragedy Medea, meets the contemporary “priestesses” of modern Greece, Maria Callas and Melina Mercouri. Three women of passion, women of Greece, legends of art and life. Their paths are different, yet they have one common characteristic; they are passionate women, incorporating the temperament and values of Greek spirit with a shared ‘pathos’ for life, love, art, creativity, freedom and democracy.

Medea, the tragic figure of ancient Greek drama, blinded by her deep love for her husband, murdered her own children. Maria Callas, the internationally celebrated opera diva, devoted her life to music and let her fate be sealed by a fatal romance.




Μelina Mercouri, one of the most beloved Greek actresses, singer and politician, who starred in the most well-known international films, fought for culture and democracy. These ancient and modern stories unfold at To Treno sto Rouf, an old carriageway that has been converted into an impressive theatrical space.




An actress and a musician meet on stage to bring to life significant historical moments and guide us through this imaginary voyage, where Greece is its departure and arrival at the same time with stops in the hearts of people around the world.

Duration: 60 minutes. This theatrical performance is in English.




Written by Eugenia Arsenis. Directed by Tatiana Ligari. Starring Evelina Arapidi in all three roles. Music by Fotis Mylonas.

 2018 Triennial: Songs for sabotage

Lobby Gallery, Second, Third, and Fourth Floors


Manolis D. Lemos: dusk and dawn look just the same riot tourism 2017/ Mixed media installation


Songs for Sabotage brings together works by 26 artists, artist groups, and collectives from 19 countries, the majority of whom are exhibiting in the United States for the first time. The exhibition questions how individuals and collectives might effectively address the relationship of images and culture to the forces that structure our society. Together, these artists propose a kind of propaganda, engaging with new and traditional media to reveal the built systems that construct our reality, images, and truths.

These artists are further connected by both their deep engagements with the specificity of local context and a critical examination—and embrace—of the internationalism that links them. Their works range widely in medium and form, including painted allegories for the administration of power, sculptural proposals to renew (and destroy) monuments, and cinematic works that engage the modes of propaganda that influence us more and more each day. Viewed in ensemble, these works provide models for reflecting upon and working against a system that seems doomed to failure.

Songs for Sabotage is curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator, and Alex Gartenfeld, founding Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, with Francesca Altamura, Curatorial Assistant.
