Like every year at Christmas time, the Christmas Stories of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) come to life at the Lighthouse.

The Burger Project, the beloved band of young and old, collaborate with Endynamei Ensemble, the iconic collective of artists with and without disabilities, to form a mixed troupe and set up an original musical performance, specially created for the Christmas Stories at the SNFCC Lighthouse. Thanos Kosmidis, the legendary Professor Cosmic of the Burger Project, is in charge of the artistic direction, and Eleni Efthymiou, director, actor and constant collaborator of Endynamei Ensemble, is directing this festive show filled with humor, songs and sensitivity, addressed to children and the entire family.

The Christmas village is amidst the yearly hustle and bustle as everyone is preparing for the holidays! Santa's postal workers have read all the letters, making sure everything is in place in order to convey the children's wishes to the toy factory, when they suddenly discover four letters that are quite unusual! Their mission now is to find the Christmas Spirits that will be able to fulfill these special wishes!

With lots of live music, interactive games and many adventures, the end will come with a twist!

The Burger Project

The Burger Project were created in 2007, playing covers in the band's special way. They stood out for their theatricality, energy and sense of humor in their live performances, using disguises and featuring a repertoire that covers the entire spectrum of contemporary foreign and Greek music. Since 2012, the Burger Project have been actively engaged in musical shows for children.

Their children's concerts are an original experience for young and old alike. The creative presentation of the instruments and their role in a music band; improvisation; the multiple possibilities of the human voice; the secrets of rhythm in dance and song - these are some of the themes that bring children close to music and stimulate their imagination. Through their children's songs, their humorous prose and their interaction with the audience, the Burger Project invite young and old to participate in rhythmic, melodic and movement games, as well as to dance as crazily as they can!

Some of their shows for families include, indicatively: "Mom, I will set up a band" [Hellenic Cosmos of the Foundation of the Hellenic World, 2012-2015]; "Touring the Galaxy" [Hellenic Cosmos, 2015-2016]. Together with shadow puppet master Elias Karellas, "Karagiozis Captain" and "Karagiozis's Christmas in Hawaii" [Athens Concert Hall, 2015], as well as "In the Ark at eight" [Kappa Theatre, 2016]; in 2017-2019, "Music and Friends" [Porta Theatre] and "Fiesta Kourabié" [Alsos Theatre, 2019]. Over the past two years, they have been collaborating with Attiki Odos in the musical performance for schools "The Asphalt Troubadours," a show about road users' behavior.

En Dynamei Ensemble

We are a collective of artists with and without disabilities. Through our activities, we propose a new paradigm of art and life, where the "unfamiliar," the "strange," the "different" and the "foreign" are integrated into the "whole" making it stronger. Our work is based on equality amongst all our members, as we attempt to inspire other people to stop perceiving the social system through stereotypes and conventional forms. Using research into new methods of communication as our basic tool, we organize and produce comprehensive artistic propositions in the fields of visual arts, theatre, music, and multimedia arts. We are in permanent collaboration with professionals from various artistic fields, and actively participate in events and festivals in Greece and abroad. The artistic director of our group is Eleni Dimopoulou. Our headquarters are in Thessaloniki.
