  "Colours of another epoch"


The chairman of the CULTURAL SOCIETY LONGOS, Mr Ierotheos Mourikis, opened the event and wellcomed the guests, explained this street theatre and expressed his thanks to the actors and especially Mrs Maria Dourou-Sollbach and Mr Werner Charilaos Sollbach, who organised thist first street theatre in Longos.

The street theatre wants to make alive an important part of the tradition traveling into the past of our village. The purpose of the theatre is to trace life in ancient times, to compare the older with modern lifestyles. It reveals the difficulties of the day to day life due to the lack of technology, the traditional professions that have been lost over time, but also the way of entertaining this era is vividly expressed. A nostalgia of those times, so that the old remember and the young learn. How was washing your hands, how was the laundry washed? The visitor watched more than 50 actors of the Longos-Theatre in various places, presenting the everyday life in their own unique way.


Have a look at some photos:
