Energean supported the 2nd Dodoni Festival, in the Ioannina Prefecture
For the second consecutive year, Energean supported the Dodoni Festival, by being one of the Grand Sponsors of the events which take place in the Ioannina Prefecture, an area which Energean explores as member of a JV with Repsol.
Energean supported the Dodoni Festival, which was organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Epirus, the Ephorate of Antiquities and the Cultural Center of the Municipality of Dodoni, focusing on the Archaeological Site of Dodoni.
Energean, which is active in the exploration of hydrocarbons in the prefectures of Ioannina and Thesprotia, considers the Dodoni Festival as an institution that can significantly promote the cultural and touristic profile of the region.
Our company is pleased to support the Dodoni Festival, as we believe it can become a reference point for the cultural events of Epirus and our country in general. The level of events is particularly high and it is clear that, combined with the historical symbols that characterize the Archaeological Site and the Ancient Theater of Dodoni, this institution has all the prerequisites to create an attractive touristic product with obvious benefits for local communities in the region.
This year, the program of the Dodoni Festival includes the following events:
- On the 7th and 8th of July, the festival presented a group analytical Symposium, entitled "The Connection between the Ancient Greek with the Psychoanalytic and the Group-Analytical Thought: Omen-Interpretation-Prevention". The Symposium is co-organized with the Institute of Group Analysis "S.H.Foulkes" (Ι.Ο.A.F. - EGATIN member).
- On the 5th of August, the ancient theater of Dodoni hosted the National Theater of Greece, which presented Sophocles' “Electra”, directed by Thanos Papakonstantinou. It was a great performance, watched by almost 2,000 attendants.
- On the 12th of August, "Helen" by Yannis Ritsos hosted, directed by Dimitris Avdeliodis.
