Odysseus' journey to Ithaca starts again from the Garden of the Megaron, with 200 readers animating with their voices the "Odyssey" in an All-Night Participatory Reading that will last until the morning of the next day. Those interested in taking part in or attending the reading can register for free at the following specially formulated online platform: https://www.eventora.com/el/Events/odysseia-2017-odyssey-2017-1.
The Overnight Reading of the "Odyssey" will begin on Saturday September 23 at 8:00 in the evening and will last until 6:00 am on Sunday 24/9 (admission free). The space will remain open throughout Reading, while the public will be able to enter and leave at any time (start at 6:30 pm). The event is under the auspices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and is devoted to the modern odyssey of refugees who have resorted to Greece and other countries and is part of the "Art Night Athens" organized by Atenistas throughout Athens, inviting city residents to discover different expressions in a variety of art and culture organizations from 8pm to 6am.
The Modern Greek translation of the "Odyssey" that will be screened during the Reading, framed by images, bears the signature of Kazantzakis-Kakridis, since 2017 has been proclaimed the "Kazantzakis Year", on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the death of the great Greek writer. English translation by Stanley Lombardo.
