PROGRAM / BIG BANG ATHENS 2019
Friday 24 May 2019 - Sunday 26 May 2019
Dimosthenis Grivas /
The View-Master, this legendary device for children of any age, which was shaped like binoculars and used to project static three-dimensional images, begins a magical trip around the world of children, accompanied by live music and video. In our trip, the static image of the View-Master is replaced by video. Objects, natural phenomena, seasons, abstract concepts and anything else that might interest the children of yesterday and today comes to life in 80 moving pictures. A voyage through time that might serve as a bridge between the world of the child and that of the parent.
