Taxiarchis Beligiannis the Storyteller
Taxiarchis Beligiannis was born in Piraeus. From an early age he fell into the fantasy pot of legends and fairytales; he dealt with strategy games and Role Playing Games. He met the traditional folk fairytale accidentally in 2006 at an amazing seminar by L. Labrellis (KETHEA Diavasi), and since then he has been devoted to soul and body. Since 2008, he has made narratives in schools, bars, museums, countryside and artistic expression scenes, and has participated in major festivals throughout Greece.
She has been apprenticed near L. Lambrelli, A. Strumouli and S. Voulgaris, completing a series of seminars, as well as several individual workshops with A. Thanou, S. Pelasgos and M. Maratos. He believes, however, that the great teacher is the story,either if it is from a 5 year old child with the freshness and honesty of the age or the grandmother and the grandfather of 150 years with the experience and tradition of times.
Recently he has been involved in the recording of traditional fairy tales and, together with G. Ioannou, has published two collections.
