New playlists of the Onassis digital channel:

#On Stage

With “On Stage,” the Onassis Foundation brings back  sold-out theatrical and musical shows showcasing the Onassis Cultural Centre’s and Onassis USA’s amazing repertoire through its new digital platform !

#Onassis Encounters

A meeting with artists, authors, scientists, people who transform the way we think through their works, their lives. Each video is a unique encounter, an opportunity to look at the past but also towards the future.

#Future in Common

A program created for all the things that concern us, starting from today until as far as tomorrow goes, for what fuels our curiosity and energy, for what we have shared for long and for what we want to share in the future. A place where art meets the environmental crisis and fashions meets thoughts, ideas and a three-dimensional world made of digits.

#Onassis Cinema

The curated program “Cinema” consists of selected films by filmmakers who take risks, experiment and redefine the concept of cinema. Hybrid documentaries, short films, powerful stories, including new films are introduced to the public for the first time, as a virtual premiere through our digital channel.
