Workshop B: DAY 3: Tryouts in Greek
Updated: Dec 29, 2018
On DAY 3 the team visited the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, which hosts the Greek National Opera's Main Stage and Alternative Stage, among other institutions. The building complex was open to the public in 2017, with the RE-FUSE platform's results being presented as part of Alternative Stage's 2017-18 season. The GNO organised a tour for the RE-FUSE artists at the facilities of both stages, sharing technical information and the opera's artist vision on how to make use of the new halls.
The rest of the day found the team working back in the studio, focusing on how to approach the Greek language as sound material. A selection of texts were translated into Greek, with the Greek-speaking members teaching pronunciation and intonation to the non-Greek ones. At the end of the day a tryout took place, putting together the work that had been done up to that point.
