52 D – 52nd Dimitria

One city. One world.

The best way to become acquainted with the world is to bring it closer to you, to incorporate it into a fertile, hopeful and human framework. A framework that remains open to the known as well as the unknown, to everything local and everything international. A framework where the past will intersect with the present and together they will meet the future. A framework in which citizens will meet the cosmopolite hidden within themselves.

The 52nd DIMITRIA, in keeping with the promise it made to the world, is continuing on exactly that path: the path of renewal and extroversion. The path of dialogue and interaction. With the city of Thessaloniki as the starting point, it brings cultures from around the world closer to us: from Iran to Cuba, from Belgium to China, from Hungary to Ireland.

Theatrical performances, performance art, concerts, visual arts, photography and cinema; a total of 42 main events and other side events compose the festival’s core-mosaic, at the centre of which Humanity stands dominant; the absolute protagonist and simultaneous audience of its own journey; a journey that at times leads it to tragedy and at others to comedy. Humanity, which – despite having faced hardships, difficulties and failures – continues to dream and believe in a brighter future.

The 52nd Dimitria promises you a unique experience. A charming journey full of surprises. The 52nd Dimitria is your Dimitria and it awaits you.
