Oscar-winning British actress Tilda Swinton and fashion curator Olivier Saillard will for the first time present the results of one of their collaborations at the Onassis Foundation’s Stegi in Athens.

Τhe ritualistic performance titled “Embodying Pasolini” features the costumes and props used in the films of the unforgettable director, Pier Paolo Pasolini, who was brutally murdered in 1975 at the age of 53.

Described as both “a ritual-like fashion show” and “an absolutely idiosyncratic tribute to the great nonconformist filmmaker, poet, and activist” in which “high fashion meets high art”, the performance/live installation features Tilda Swinton “as a canvas” and “a collection of more than thirty costumes and props designed by Danilo Donati during the 1960s and 1970s and crafted by atelier Farani for the films of the Italian director.”

The show will run for six days, December 11-16, 2023.

On Friday, December 15, there will also be an after-performance talk with Olivier Saillard and Tilda Swinton at the Onassis Exhibition Hall -1, with simultaneous interpretation in Greek.

Ticket prices between 5 and 40 euros.
