Dance floor VARIO 2.0 in black in the Odeon Theatre of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon Theatre of Herodes Atticus, built in 161 AD on the southern rocky slope of the Acropolis, is one of the oldest and most beautiful open-air theatres in Athens. With almost 4,500 seats, it was extensively restored in 1950 and is one of the central venues for the annual Athens Festival. Both Greek and international performances take place on the stage. Performances by renowned artists such as ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn, opera diva Maria Callas and singer Liza Minnelli are part of the theatre's portfolio.

As part of the Greek Hellenic Festival, the entire floor of the theatre's open-air stage was fitted with the VARIO 2.0 dance floor for permanent use by Gerriets. The dance floor has a silky matt surface embossing and is extremely dimensionally stable even without a reinforcing fleece. Thanks to its high robustness, the VARIO 2.0 is suitable for touring use and all types of dance.
