Athos Danellis, of Cretan origin, was born in Athens. He studied journalism in London and worked as arts and cultural writer for the Greek media.
From a very young age he studied and worked in traditional Greek Shadow Theatre, and was fortunate to serve his apprenticeship with masters of the old school, thus preserving an uninterrupted tradition.
A lecturer, broadcaster and historian, he works extensively to keep this great popular art alive.
