Hellenic Ēkhōs - Club Zho 122

(A Club Zho Odyssey)


Beyond preservations of nationalist identity, there is an ethos that surpasses stifling anachronisms and cultural stereotypes. Such a belief is that culture is like an organism, constantly mutating and advancing outside the confines of borders. This was historically evident between 323 BC -31 BC, when Hellenic art and science spread across many nations far from Greece, interacting with other cultures and broadening its wisdom into the cross-cultural phenomena known as the Hellenistic age.

In the 20th century, Hellenic composers such as Iannis Xenakis and Jani Christou embraced a trans-historical philosophy, seeing themselves as a continuation of this ethos that espoused the inseparable symbiosis of art and science. After all, it was the technological advances of the 20th century that saw artists reunited with an ideal, which closely paralleled the Hellenic ethos that preceded it.

In this spirit, we fast-forward to 2015 and 12,482 km from Greece to Hellenic Ēkhōs in Perth – a night of performances by Hellenic Composers and performers Steve Paraskos, Masonik, Chris Cobilis, Eleventeen Eston, Mega Michalis, Petros Vouris and Nefeli Perdikouli. This will be the very first Hellenic Ēkhōs, a night celebrating Club Zho's long history with The Hellenic Club of WA.
