1821 revolution

The art, music, costume

The Greek War of Independence officially began in March 1821. After nearly 400 years of Ottoman occupation, Hellenes (Greeks) came together and, with help from the Philhellenes, won their independence.

This production tells the story of the Revolution through a cultural lens.

Music, dance, art and literature all function as chronicles of the struggle for independence, relating personal stories about its impact. 

What people wore symbolised their identity and attachment to their region; but once the nation of Hellas (Greece) was formed, a national costume was created to represent the new nation and a new identity.
