From September 27 to October 6, 2019, we take the art in our hands. Fabrica Athens invites you to participate in a big artistic celebration. For ten days we transform Kerameikos, express ourselves, experiment and share our ideas around theater, music, dance, circus, cinema, photography, crafts and any other art form we represent.

The idea

What does handmade festival mean? How does somebody recycle art?

Central to the Handmade and Recycled Theater Festival is the idea of ​​handmade and recyclable. Self-organization and collectivity function as a necessary component of our artistic expression and our need to reach ourselves, with our own handmade means, an artistic result becomes our driving force.

Our goal is to support artists who want to take art into their own hands, to highlight diy creations and to develop a network of artists who have a common way of thinking, perceiving and creating. We invite all of you to share your ideas with us and to co-organize a different Festival of Handmade & Recyclable Theater!
