EllinikoTheatro is an international performing arts organization based in New York and Athens. Since its inception in 1979, it has sought to serve as an innovative carrier of cultural diplomacy, expanding the temporal, spatial and social boundaries of Hellenic Theatre.

This summer EllinikoThεatro is pleased to present ATHENS2018, an international performing arts festival in Athens, and ΟΔΥΣΣΕΙΑ, a public participatory reading of Homer’s poem in Amsterdam.
