The night comes to its end at the greek night club (bouzouki-dance floor). It’s five o’clock in the morning. The few last clients left at the club are clapping out of habit for the opening singer while she finishes her appearance with a long ‘goodnight’.
Nobody could have guessed what would happen when the leading star of the night program, the famous singer Koureas, begins to sing his brand new hit, a zeibekiko* song called, ‘the bearded man’.
A sequence of ecstatic events? A raised challenge? Hugs hanged on alcohol?
Maniera Greca or in other words, the way the world goes round?
We are the witnesses of the clients leaning on their drinks with their eyes on us, our eyes on them and Katerina Gogou, still looking straight to all of us..37 years later.
*Greek folk dance of free choreographic structure
