Multi-theme festival

The 7PLY PROJECT / seven sheets of wood, a.k.a the skateboard, is returning for its thirteenth year, focusing on young people and their aesthetic codes.

The event is the largest street culture celebration in Thessaloniki and it will hold seven days of events focused on the new Olympic sport of skateboarding, culture, sports, and urban culture.

More than one thousand pieces by Greek and international artists have been presented since 7Ply Project was first held in 2006, while the festival has hosted a number of skateboard competitions and shows, skateboard lessons, colloquiums and workshops, guided by modern art, street dance, screenings, graffiti on walls and specially designed surfaces, concerts and DJ sets, all kinds of events focused on street culture and the interests of young audiences.

Keeping skateboarding at the core of its themes once again, this year’s 7Ply Project presents a group exhibition at the French Institute of Thessaloniki, in the framework of which artists are invited to transform skateboards, each artist using their own perspective and technique, with absolute aesthetic freedom.

Event Details

A workshop addressing those studying the arts, dance, and drama, as well as those interested in an in-depth exploration of the work of choreographer Catherine Baÿ.

Focusing on ‘Snow White’, Catherine Baÿ’s long-standing and constantly evolving project that has been presented several times in many places around the world since its premiere in Paris in 2003, the workshop is dedicated to training the body in a way that develops group expression and the presence of the individual within the group, according to the Jacques Lecoq method. The workshop will allow participating students to gain expressive means that are appropriate for controlling their stage presence in the space and pace of a performance.

The workshop is offered free of charge, after a selection process drawing participants from among fine arts, dance, and theatre students. Participants in the workshop and performance that will take place on October 11 will be chosen from this selection process.
