Giannas Ristos will be honored on May 21st and 22nd in the Interkult Theater, Vienna with a special presentation of a play narrating the poet's inspiring life story. Supported by the Association of Greek Students, this original presentation seeks to capture the fighting spirit of the poet while simultaneously paying him a final salute.

A tribute to the great Greek poet, Giannis Ritsos will take place at the Interkult Theater in the capital of Austria, Vienna on May 21 and 22. The theatrical company …zur Sonne, the first Greek theatrical group in Vienna, will present the play, We step aside, poet, so that you pass.

The performance is a brief narration of Ritsos’ life and focuses on the most important stations of his turbulent life, rich in emotions and poetic production.

The actors are simultaneously narrators, and accompany the pure narration of events with Ritsos’ original lyrics. The narration-recitation is interrupted by his lyrics set to music by the great composer Mikis Theodorakis.
