Since 2009, Medea Electronique have been staging their annual “Koumaria” ten-day explorative workshop-residency in an olive grove just outside Sellasia, a hamlet to the north of Sparti. Focused on improvisation and the application of new media and inspired by the Greek countryside, artists from around the world develop a cross-media multi-cultural dialogue with a view to producing and performing a work of collective improvisation. The theme of this year's residency is “improvisation and politics in collaboration with the local community”.
Video installations will be presented at the 5th floor foyer.

Alongside there will be the Symposium: "Sounding possibilities: Improvisation and community action” and two more exceptional  performances by Wadada Leo Smith "Τen Freedom Summers" and Glue
