Theatrical guided tour

Have a gas!

A theatrical tour in English

...to have a thoroughly entertaining, enjoyable and amusing time!

Through a novel theatrical tour led by an actor, the gasworks, which provided the city of Athens with energy and lighting for 130 years, comes to life. A unique historical site of great industrial heritage becomes a living museum where the buildings, the streets, the machinery and their surroundings become the natural setting of this …unexpected walking tour, enriched with a theatrical performance! You will definitely experience a fascinating time travel as the expert guide breathes life into various characters and their stories from the factory’s foundation in the 1850s until today. Following the gas production line, from coal loading to gas measurement, and its technological advances, we stimulate our senses: we smell the factory’s odors, we listen to people’s stories, we get in touch with the old machinery and we admire the historical treasures of the gas world.

Performer: Yiannis Askaroglou, “Anemomiloi” theater group
