ΚΕΤΗΕA Rehabilitation Centre - KETHEA DIAVASI Cultural Club
Stories from a parallel reality
An audio walk about life after drugs
Men and women of all age groups, former drug addicts, take us along on a tour through public spaces, employing sound narratives and documents, charting and mapping out the city in their own, unique way. Standing in crowded, rundown or cosmopolitan areas of Athens, visitors will put on headsets and listen to stories about a parallel universe: about illusions and lost time, Omonia Square and the Pedion Areos, the left, capitalism, cinema, rave parties, emergency rooms, studying at university and the value of money. Narratives about the past and the future, filled with humour, poetry and slang, are related by those who decided to try life beyond addiction.
On selected dates, special events and happenings featuring the artistic groups of KETHEA will be held at Peiraios 260, after the evening performances come to an end.
Starting points: Peiraios 260, courtyard – Dionysiou Areopagitou, entrance to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus – Voukourestiou pedestrian street – Syntagma Square – Avdi Square, Metaxourgeio – Kypseli Municipal Market
