To celebrate the World Storytelling Day 2019, storytellers from around Europe will come together for a battle of myths, bringing the MythOff experience for the first time in front of Greek audience.
Six storytellers – three international, three Greek – present stories from mythologies around the world with the goal to be a winner in a battle of heritage and oral tradition where the final judge is the audience.
The event will take place in the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, a beacon of world cultural heritage with some of the most important exhibitions in the world. Amongst
In addition, the Athens Comics Library – the only library dedicated to comics in Greece – and the Comicdom Press organization – that hosts the biggest comics event in Greece – will add a unique flavor to the event. Comic artists will present their interpretation and new take on the myths in an exhibition that will run parallel to the event while they will be actively involved in the performance.
