This puppet workshop gives weekly karagiozi (shadow puppet) shows in winter in its sweet 50-seat theatre. The husband-and-wife team are happy to show how the shadow-puppet set-up works and how the figures are made. Check the site for the schedule. In summer they mount more frequent shows in the Theatro Skion Tasou Konsta, in the park in Palaio Faliro.
