SYNOPSIS

An orchestra could be one guitar, a piano, keyboards and a voice. Right? Wrong! ... An orchestra could be five voices as well! StringLESS !! Five women, an acapella vocal group from Thessaloniki, trying to survive in the midst of the Greek crisis, creating beautiful & alternative music with female identity. Can they make it?

 

Μια ορχήστρα αποτελείται από: μία κιθάρα, ένα μπάσο, ένα πιάνο και τύμπανα. Α! Και μία φωνή! Σωστά;… Λάθος! Μια ορχήστρα μπορεί να αποτελείται από φωνές που κάνουν τα πάντα! Πέντε γυναίκες! Πέντε ζωές! Που αγωνίζονται να επιβιώσουν στο δύσκολο καλλιτεχνικό περιβάλλον της Θεσσαλονίκης, δημιουργώντας μια μουσική εναλλακτική, μια μουσική με γυναικεία ταυτότητα. Προσπαθούν να κρατηθούν ενωμένες. Θα τα καταφέρουν;
