The Onassis Stegi in Athens, is a cultural center which hosts performances and activities across the whole spectrum of the arts from theatre, dance, music, cinema and the visual arts to the written word, with an emphasis on contemporary cultural expression.
The Onassis Stegi, in its almost ten years of existence, maintains the same adventurous curiosity to explore the city, the world, life itself. It remains equally restless and sensitive, local and global. Through its various activities, it triggers discussions and takes a stand in regards to democracy, social justice, education, the environment, our digital present, our virtual realities, our bodies and our national borders. It releases the creative potential of Greek artists all around the world, while bringing global premieres and international co-productions to Greece. Always curious and questioning without didacticism, Onassis Stegi knows the value of critical reflection, cultural memory and – why not – pleasure.
