Description

Since November 2015, the members of the UrbanDig Project, artists, architects, urbanists, and theatre theorists, have been conducting an excavation of sorts on the Omonia Square. Everywhere, on and beneath the square, inside the underground railway station and its surrounding underpasses and galleries, this quasi-excavation unearths stories, songs, music, images, customs, dreams, and wishes tied to the square’s people, old and new, young and old, permanent residents and passers-by alike. A written and audiovisual cultural archive, drawing on past and present Omonia material, gradually comes to life through open participation. The much-maligned and controversial space of Omonia is re-introduced as a living locus of co-existence, collaboration, growth, and common ground. Driven by the cultural archive, the local dynamics, and people’s expectations of the square, the UrbanDig Project has created Omonia Station, a walking performance encompassing theatre, dance, music, and visual interventions in public spaces. Six vignettes/ stories will converge at the centre of the square. Six different people will head to Omonia, hoping to make their dreams come true. A landmark of the city, the square will be re-imagined as a personal landmark in each person’s life.
