Euanthia Kairi Theater

The Euanthia Kairi Theater is located in the region of Lazaretta, in Ermoupolis, Syros and is situated in old warehouses,  renovated by the municipality. It’s a small theater, used mainly by local political factors and organizations both for theatrical rehearsals and other events.

At first, the Euanthia Kairi Theater was only used for outdoor events. However, after the interior renovations, this venue is used more often, and is managed by the municipal Culture Center.

Its name was given to it in honor of the early feminist and Greek author Euanthia Kairi, born in 1799 in Andros island, sister of Theophilos Kairis, well-known Greek philosopher, revolutionary and “Teacher of the Nation”. Euanthia Kairi lived in Hermoupolis from 1824 till 1839 and was the first to establish a local troupe on the island. The three decades between 1830 and 1860 we observe a really big theatrical motion in Hermoupolis, reinforced after the creation of the “Apollon” theater.
