ART YOUR SERVICE - KYPRIA festival opening

  • Faneromenis Nicosia Cyprus (map)


A Performing Arts celebration

01.09.2019  @ 18.00 - 22.00

On September 1st, art will encounter its audience at the town center where they will celebrate their reciprocal relationship. The concept for the Kypria opening is based on the project “The Performance Shop” by Lia Haraki where live art becomes an essential part of everydayness. Artists will therefore present their work in the streets of the old City of Nicosia, inside the windows of shops, through alleys and city squares.  Creation will remind us once more, through its multiple forms and genres, how to be humans TOGETHER.
