This Saturday (19th October), Rebetiko creator David Prudhomme will take part in ‘Greece is the Word’, a series of events celebrating modern Greek culture at the South Bank Centre in London. Curated by Rosie Goldsmith, ‘Greece is the Word’ is intended as a cutting edge, creative response to the current Greek crisis, featuring some of the world’s finest writers, poets and performers.
David Prudhomme will be drawing live on stage accompanied by the Rebetiko music of Pavlos Melas and his band. The live drawing event forms part of ‘Katerina’s Krisis Kabaret’, an evening of comedy, theatre, music and literature hosted by Greece’s funniest stand-up comic Katerina Vrana (Purcell Room, 8pm).
