"The Murderess" by Alexandros Papadiamantis is now available in audio form, thus enabling anyone who wants to "listen" in an expressive way to the context of this magnificent work of the author. 14 actors and narrators personify the heroes of the book attributing to each one the local dialect and accompanied by original musical sounds and effects. In this performance, Papadiamantis takes us to his homeland, the island of Skiathos, back at the time of Ottoman rule.
Curious place Corfu! Civilized, loving but simultaneously explosive. (...) Hunger and dreams,... accompanied by music. Terrific combination that chases away insecurity. Most used word was "berese" i. e. credit. People of Corfu owed their harvest, their job, their existence and their money and they constantly lacked money to buy a new clothe. The only thing they didn't owe to any dealer or lender was the "Holy madness" they carried in their genes and romanticism that illuminated their difficult lives. In this long audio book, the author and famous actors, using the idiomatic language of the island give life to four tragicomic tales of the Eptanisa. The persons in these stories become alive and are given the opportunity to live for a while with us. In addition we have the opportunity to live the local history.
