Φεστιβάλ Αθηνών: Μοναδική τελετή επίκλησης του Ήλιου στην Επίδαυρο

Μια ξεχωριστή πρόταση από το θέατρο Νο της Ιαπωνίας έκανε διαφορετικό το πρωινό του Σαββάτου που μας πέρασε, στο αρχαίο θέατρο Επιδαύρου.

Ήταν μια  πρόταση στο κοινό να παρακολουθήσει, με ελεύθερη είσοδο, στις 6 το πρωί, την τελετή της επίκλησης του Ήλιου. Και παρά τη δύσκολη ώρα, στη διαδρομή για το αρχαίο θέατρο δημιουργήθηκε μια μεγάλη ουρά αυτοκινήτων ενώ στις 6 ακριβώς, περισσότερα από 1.000 θεατές άρχισαν να παρακολουθούν, για περίπου μία ώρα μια αρχέγονη τελετή, που οι καλλιτέχνες του Θεάτρου Νο έκαναν δώρο στο ελληνικό κοινό, σαν αντίδωρο στην πρόσκληση του Φεστιβάλ Αθηνών.

Crete is the largest and most populated Greek Island, with around 625,000 residents. Archaeological evidence suggests that humans (or pre-human hominids) may have reached the island 130,000 years ago, but we know for certain that modern humans have lived there for 10,000-12,000 years.

 

Crete was the heart of the Minoan civilization, which lasted from 2700 to 1420 BC and is considered the earliest recorded civilization in all of Europe. The Minoans are known for their monumental palaces, the most famous of which can be found at the Bronze Age archaeological site of Knossos, the ceremonial and political center of Minoan culture.

 

Originally uncovered by Minos Kalokairinos in 1878, the palace was excavated by Sir Arthur Evans in the early 20th century, and is still being investigated by the British School of Archaeology today.

Lights of an Aurora From the International Space Station

The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views on the ground, but also capture the imagination of scientists who study incoming energy and particles from the sun. Aurora are one effect of such energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs.

Alexis Tsipras and His Syriza Party Clash as Greece Faces Another Deadline

Parliament must approve a package of financial and judicial changes before midnight to keep negotiations on track for the bailout of about $94 billion.

As another deadline for approving a package of creditor-mandated measures approached on Wednesday, Prime MinisterAlexis Tsipras and rebellious members of his leftist Syriza party have begun taking shots at one another in public.

Parliament must approve a package of financial and judicial changes before midnight to keep negotiations on track for the bailout of 86 billion euros, or about $94 billion.

It has been clear since the first vote on the measures last week that a significant faction of Mr. Tsipras is frustrated with his leadership on the debt crisis, with about a quarter of his party voting against the first package of measures in Parliament last Wednesday.

The disagreement had largely played out behind closed doors and without rancor as Mr. Tsipras tried to persuade his dissenting party members, most of whom belong to the hard-line faction known as the Left Platform, to support him.

On Tuesday night, however, Mr. Tsipras, perhaps recognizing that he was making little headway, seemed to take the first shot, as those close to him let it be known that he had said that the hard-liners were “hiding behind the safety of his signature.”
