Nicosia (B Elementary School Kaimakli)

3 locations, 12 players and a few unknown Tales

 “Myths and Tales from/across the Divide” is a Theatre Project performed at three Outdoor Basketball-Courts in Paphos, North-Nicosia and South-Nicosia. 12 young greek- and turkish cypriot performers, growing up in very different circumstances on the same land, encounter on the “playing field” an honest and unfiltered exchange of personal stories, known histories and untold tales - striving for a more empathetic perspective of each other.

The performance is the outcome of a 3-month devised-theatre workshop series and a contribution of the Goethe-Institut Cyprus to “Paphos 2017” under the guidance of Artistic Directors Achim Wieland and Marios Ioannou, and Collaborating Dramaturge Ellada Evangelou.

The performance is in English (with some greek and turkish text elements).
Free entrance.
