HALEPAS - ARGYRO CHIOTI


 

The lives and deaths of Yannoulis Halepas, in a dream-like experience. A contemporary music tragedy about the sculptor who was artistically reborn in the twilight of his years.

Yannoulis Halepas, that ascetic figure of Greek sculpture – whom some called “the Auguste Rodin of Greece”, others “a saint, a madman, a genius, an artist cursed” – encounters the gaze of Argyro Chioti.

From his birth in the village of Pyrgos on the island of Tinos – amid the marble slabs and plentiful dust of his family’s stone cutting workshop – through to his legendary sculpture of the “Sleeping Maiden” that stands inside the First Cemetery of Athens. And from his breakdown, his committal to a psychiatric hospital, and his many years spent in isolation up in the mountains of his island, through to his spiritual awakening and the sweeping renaissance that characterized his old age. As he himself said: “The new (old man) Halepas outdid the old (young man).”

Through dream-like illusions, Argyro Chioti walks to the difficult path that was the sculptor’s life, always between silence and absurdity, stillness and creativity, presenting the contemporary music tragedy “Halepas” with a libretto by The Boy, music by Jan Van Angelopoulos, set designs by Efi Birba and an exceptional ensemble cast.
