Torchlight Procession     it'sabeautiful
day

"We felt we needed to do something. The Film Society came into existence, in an atmosphere of general enthusiasm, we thought of organising a torchlight procession, a Lambadiforia. Everything happened at once. Nothing was planned. It was raining, but that wasn't going to stop us. We met up in the old Venetian walled citadel, the Kastro, each of us with an idea. There weren't that many of us, just a group of friends eager to do something, anything. We decided to opt for simplicity in our costumes: white sheets which we deliberately dirtied:eyes black with kohl against chalk-white faces. Someone had brought along some ears of corn and we wore these round our necks, our waist and our temples. We carried whatever percussion instruments we could lay our hand on and those who happened to have cowbells wore them round their waists. We went onto the streets, not a clue where we were heading and caring either. We danced from sidewalk to sidewalk, startling passers-by, and making for, laughing and screaming all the while, the Temple of Apollo. That's how it all started. Just like that."
