Event Details

A play by Mimi Denisi about the history of Smyrna based on many years of historical research from the Foundation of the Hellenic World.

The play tells the story of Smyrna and of one of the most important periods in the history of Greece, namely that of the exchange of population between Greece and Turkey, and of refugees, from 1917 to 1923.

The play is written and directed by Mimi Denisi, who has carried out complete research devoted to the music of the Ionia area (the area where Smyrna is located). The play features rich scenery, costumes from that era, and authentic photographs of the legendary city. The play is a production of the Foundation of the Hellenic World, the purpose of which is to preserve the historical memory and traditions of the country.

Mimi Denisi used materials from the rich archives of the Foundation, testimonies of Greeks, Turks, Levantines, over 100 books by historians, travellers, writers, journalists, and ordinary people of the time. She also used materials from unpublished theses and studies, which is why a lot of data related to the dramatic events will become known for the first time to the general public thanks to the play. The play is in Greek.

Tickets are available at all AlfaMega Supermarkets.
