 40 artists - 110 performances - 13 Cities

more then 40 artists from Indonesia, West Africa, Denmark, Holland, America and Greece toured seven districts of the region
of Peloponese, in southern mainland Greece.
The artists performed on a mobile theater, The Stage Bus,
built in the Netherlands in 1994 by installation artist Aart Marcus

The Arts can touch the heart of man, giving him the inspiration of life. The Arts give form to our expressions, create what we see, stimulate what we think, create our environment, design what we use, as well as stimulate creativity and change. As individuals we all have something to contribute to the Arts. When we draw this inspiration through our national heritage and create as an expression of our own culture, insignificance is better appreciated. Festival a la Carte is offering just such an appreciation: a multi-national, multi-dicipline gathering of the Arts with a pure
intention at its core.
