#TEXTME_FLUFFYLIBRARY TEXTME_LAB: Lena Platonos, queer readings / tribute
Lena Platonos is a central figure in the Greek LGBT community since the 80s. Her lyrics, which express distinct, often lonely subjectivities, as well as her peculiar electro theatre music, keep on enchanting and inspiring queer music scenes and collectives across the world. The event includes a series of queer readings of Platonos’s work.
In the first part, the musicologist and cultural studies theoretician Nikos Vourdoulas focuses on Platonos’s electronic song-writing, presenting the ways in which she expresses and emotionally brings together groups of people from the Greek and the international LGBT communities.
In the second part, there will be a variety show by artists from the hellenic queer music scene and in particular from the Fytini music label. Andriana Minou, Louiza Doloxa, Alexandros Drosos, Filtig, and others, will cover pieces that reinterpret Platonos’s work at another sound, lyrics and performance level.
