It was created in 1979 by Nikos Parikos and expands activities in all the sectors of art and civilization. The main focus of its action is the theater carrying the title "AEGEAN THEATRICAL EXODUS".
The core of its philosophy is the "exodus" of art in nature, the development of the popular tradition, the sensitization of the simple folk with regard to matters of civilization as well as their accession into the resourceful happenings of life and art. The "exodus" in the ancient Greek drama consists of the last part of the theatrical act where the catharsis, and the intellectual uplifting takes place.
AEGEAN EXODUS is attempting to achieve goals which arise from contemporary issues . It also tries to orientate the artistic creation towards this philosophical view. It is a cultural and peaceful exodus. The exodus of the human creation. The exodus of the universal and age-old values and the AEGEAN EXODUS.
The Aegean Theatrical Exodus has presented hundreds of theatrical performances at various intellectual and artistic happenings which have taken place in the islands, the islets and the rock islands of the Aegean sea as well as other areas in Greece. It has gone on circuits covering 300.000 maritime miles participating in great festivals in Athens, Salonica, Crete, Chalkidiki, representing Greece in international cultural meetings in France, Ireland, Spain and the USA.
