Please note: This article is in Greek. Michael Marmarinos and the Cross-Cultural Aspect of National Anthems: With their performance National Hymn (2001), that started with a Greek dinner and ended with a prayer, Michael Marmarinos and the theatrical ensemble Double Eros suggested an anthropological / postmodern approach to the Greek national anthem. Key points in this approach were the investigation of everyday togetherness as a chorus, and a dramaturgical method that captured history-in-motion. With the performance as a point of departure, the paper examines the archetypal aspects of national anthems as signs that cross, and are extended beyond, local cultures by discussing representative examples from the oral and written tradition of various ethnicities.
