Duo Karbacher - Vryzas

present their new album: coexisting
Formed in Basel, Switzerland, in 2017, the duo by Eva-Maria Karbacher and Dimos Vryzas is based on the love of sound in all his different appearances. They share the same view over free improvisation: the process of creating coherent (or not) musical content in and of the moment.

They play together by creating a musical language in a communicative-collaborative manner, listening to each other, experimenting with different sounds with no restrictive judgments.

Trajectory of an Idea

by Die Wolke art group
Trajectory of an Idea
A contemporary dance piece, based on metaphor theory, featuring interaction between movement and audiovisual elements via sensor technology. Funded by the Ministry of Culture.

A metaphor likens the path, or trajectory, of an idea in time with the course of a human life. The bodies on stage come into contact with each other, as well as their environment, which presents them with limits and conditions.

The Venue

Vitruvian Thing interior

Art space, contemporary dance stage, live music venue, audiovisual studio. Home of the fuzzy mind and the experimentally inclined psyche. And Die Wolke Art Group’s headquarters.

Inside the 130 sq.m. space one finds a theatrical stage with an arsenal of audiovisual technology supporting it, an electronics lab, an editing/color grading/VFX workstation, sound and lights, a 5m projection screen, cameras, and a host of sensor and controller apparatus. Also a small number of people that are adept at utilising the aforementioned implements to creative effect. Vitruvian Thing is intended to host all kinds of experimental activities, collaborations, and educational events: dancetheatre performances, live music, film projections, installations, theatre, talks, exhibitions.

Events at Vitruvian Thing are invariably underscored by our philosophy of quality and respect towards audience and artists. The venue, as well as its managing group Die Wolke, is a non-profit endeavour (Die Wolke is a registered non-profit company).

Past Events




Vitruvian Thing seats 50 people in four rows. Most shows have multiple times/dates, so reservations are necessary to help us manage attendance.

We make it a point to start on time, to break the vicious circle of showtime delays that encourage belated arrivals and so on.

We recommed that you subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed. Social networks no longer work as they should for most people. We will never abuse your email address!


We are always looking for interesting performances to host, that meet our mission statement: high quality, forward thinking art; experimental, innovative ideas by contemporary artists; cross-disciplinary, intermedial technique; including, but certainly not limited to, dancetheatre, contemporary experimental/electroacoustic music, performance art, movie screenings, and more.

The stage is about 40m² of black, antivibrational, with computer-controlled lighting, wide projection area, sound system, 5m screen, etc. Contact us for booking info.


UP is our new rehearsal space. With around 90m² of 100% support antivibrational floor, UP is a flexible room that is particularly suitable for dance and theatre lessons, rehearsals, workshops, etc. An open, well-lit space, with clean, uncluttered aesthetics, lots of natural light, acoustic control.

UP is available to book by the hour, while special deals for recurring events are available. Contact us for booking info.


The space is bookable as a studio for seminars, workshops, rehearsals, video shooting sessions, general-purpose experimentalism, or any other purpose, with or without staff.

We also host Occam’s Sharpener, the post-production unit responsible for the visual effects in Imago, as well as various other visual media and programming projects.


Unspecified contribution
Unspecified ticket

At Vitruvian Thing, we acknowledge the difficult financial circumstances of this period. So, unless otherwise noted, admittance to the events we host entails an unspecified amount: you decide how much the ticket should be and, in doing so, you are supporting the artists and helping Die Wolke keep the venue running. At the entrance, we issue donation coupons to acknowledge your contribution, equivalent to receipts, as required by law.

So, upon arrival at Vitruvian Thing and checking in at the welcome desk, you can choose your own price of admission: literally as much as you think is just right for you. You receive your coupon, and enjoy the show.

Some events, though, especially festivals or acts coming from outside Thessaloniki, might entail a specific ticket. These will be clearly noted, and presale will be offered, instead of reservations.
