Amour Noir

Dilemma, in cooperation with the Railway Carriage Theatre to Treno sto Rouf create a magic atmosphere and bring the Alternative Greek music experience on stage, every Thursday at 21.30, at the Music Wagon Orient Express.

This rare musical duet, one of the most authentic and successful subversive schemes in the music scene for fifteen years, with love for literature and poetry, knows how to create theatrical atmosphere and how to make images and landscapes of the mind and the soul. Talented, paradox and erotic, Dilemma alternate between jazz, rock, new wave and avant garde sounds.

In the new music performance “Amour Noir”, they approach the music of inspired creators with a unique view. They share with us short stories of famous couples and dark characters from literature, music and cinema and unwind the intense feelings of love, betrayal, loss and mystery that the composers experienced or wanted to pass through their songs.

The intensity of relationships, the internal conflicts and the unpredictable reactions of heroes through timeless and favorite songs create a surprising atmosphere. The audience is coming face to face with the heroes’ lives and identify themselves with their passions.

Chet Baker, Tim Buckley, Paul Weller, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, P.J Harvey, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Lana Del Ray, REM, Radiohead, Chatzidakis, Xydakis are few of the fellow travelers in this “noir” music trip.
