Nekyia: What Happens ‘After’

Nekyia: What Happens ‘After’

What comes after life?
Is there something inbetween?
Is there a way back?
A feeling of depression when the end is here
Is death a journey with no return?
Why is there an end?
What makes life longer?

These are some of the questions that we will attempt to answer at 16 Fokionos Negri on Thursday 7th June at 8 p.m.

Kostas Georgoussopoulos, academic, writer, theatre critic, translator and poet-lyricist, and Chronis Botsoglou an important Greek artist talk about Nekyia, Nostalgia and Nostos. Nostalgia for Nostos brings Odysseus to Ades to talk to Teiresias and to the other deceased. They talk about the melancholy for the after-life that haunts the living and the nostalgia for life that haunts the souls of the dead.

Thanassis Lalas will coordinate the discussion. The audience will have the opportunity to enjoy paintings from Chronis Botsoglou’s Personal Nekyia.
