SKIN - a participatory performance

  • OPAP City theatre Tempon 2 Nicosia Cyprus (map)


by Lia Haraki 

The piece SKIN comes for the first time to Nicosia after its success at the Athens and Epidaurus festival last summer in the frame of The Performance Shop.

The piece was originally for one participant and now there is also an apportunity to experience it with two participants at the same time.

The performance works through the stimulation of the senses, particularly of touch and hearing. The participant/s close/s their eyes and the performers treat their body as a gate of perception by giving her/them the chance to come in contact with a very sensitive and vulnerable side of themselves. The piece exists only in the imagination and understanding of the participant/s who are the main performer/s.

SKIN is therefore a journey of care in a safe environment for individuals to trust their existence to others

In the framework of the collaboration between NiMAC [The Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, Associated with the Pierides Foundation] and the artistic structure .pelma. at the OPAP City Theatre
