Exhibition entitled “Dance and Theatre Costume: From Design to Realisation” in cooperation with the Progressive Society of Hymettos (FOY), the Department of Theatre Studies of the University of the Peloponnese and the Greek National Opera.

This exhibition, held at FOY from 24 November to 7 December 2008, presented for the first time to the Greek public theatre costumes and additional illustrative material – working models, patterns, photographs and material samples. These exhibits were intended to demonstrate the creative process of making a  theatre costume and the role of costume in a drama or dance performance.
Concurrently with the exhibition, the Hellenic Costume Society responded to FOY’s invitation and held an open debate on theatrical costume, its design and manufacture, in which the following Society members participated: Ioanna Papantoniou, Sofia Pantouvaki, Rena Georgiadou, costume and set designers; Christos Broufas, set designer, costume specialist and ethnologist; and Evangelia Antzaka, folklorist.
