Presentation of works by Cypriot authors

Goethe-Institut Nicosia

New Stages Southeast is a project of the Goethe-Instituts in the region of Southeast Europe, which is about promoting current and relevant social issues in contemporary theatre. The participating countries are Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, Romania, Serbia and Cyprus.

After more than a year since the beginning of New Stages Southeast, we are presenting the results of the project in Cyprus through the staging of excerpts from the works of the Cypriot authors participating. These works were created through workshops with playwrights from all over Southeast Europe and Cyprus that were led by the awarded German writer Ulrike Syha and took place at the Goethe-Institut in Nicosia in September 2021 and March 2022.

The event will include scratch performances based on texts by Maria Iole Karolidou, Marios Konstantinou, Maria Kyriakou, Melina Papageorgiou, Aliye Ummanel, and the late Achim Wieland, directed by Athina Kasiou and moderated by Ulrike Syha.

Participating actors: Aliki Achniotou, Charalambos Damianou, Sofia Kalli, Myrto Kouyiali, Christina Papadopoulou
