ABOUT THE LAKE - Pamvotis Project by Kalliergon
The first part of a multidimensional large-scale action, based on Christina’s Tzialla innovative idea, is planned for this year in the city of Ioannina, focusing on Pamvotis Lake. This modular artistic project is going to disturb its far from stagnant waters, in order to become an institution. It is based on studied forms and expressions of art and focuses mainly on theater, visual arts, literature and folklore.
The overall project is based on two main axes framed by individual innovative actions. One axis concerns an original portrait photography exhibition, on board. The subject, the presentation and the way it interacts are what make it unprecedented and unique. The other axis concerns an innovative tour, a dramatized experiential tour, based on the creation of an atmosphere and interaction with the audience.
"ABOUT THE LAKE - Pamvotis Project by Kalliergon" is a considerable tool, a new competitive product of culture and tourism with particular emphasis on literary or scholarly tourism, an integral part of our intangible cultural heritage. It is time to focus even more on another important identity element of this place, one of its biggest brands, which is none other than the "Lake of kyra Frosini"!
What separates today from yesterday is only the surface of the lake's freshwater. The connecting link of centuries is therefore its own water, since - as we know - the waters of the lakes are not renewed. The boats, marking a course in its waters, in the imaginary line of their footsteps, write at the same time so many stories of centuries! Stories, which the unwritten rules of water and oral tradition gave them dimensions of "historical myths".
Starring Pamvotis Lake, this project aims to move, to attract interest, to rekindle human consciousness, to invoke the respect of human rights and, in general, to contribute – even in the slightest – so that our world can manage to move in an increasingly healthy orbit. For this reason, part of this project is dedicated to the women who drowned along with kyra Frosyni, known as "kallimartyres", emphasizing on the perpetual claim and maintenance of the position of women in the upper and upper layers of society and not at its bottom.
May the legends that will be written in the future have only a joyful aura, so that those who have shaken its waters can sleep quietly!
