The Trojan Women by Europides is an international production with actresses and actors from divided cities in Cyprus, Bosnia and Palestine. The tragedy of the women of Troy after its defeat and destruction is reminiscent of similar situations in Nicosia, Mostar and Jerusalem. The world-renowned Greek theatre director Theodoros Terzopoulos collaborates with artists from the international theatrical sphere around the world. For this event he joins forces with one of the most important contemporary visual artist and main representative of Arte Povera, Jannis Kounellis. Kounellis will design the set, while the famous Greek actress Despina Bebedelli will take on the role of Hecuba, in a production expected to leave a mark on contemporary theatre. The Trojan Women performance, as well as other parallel activities, workshops and events, will focus on division and a corresponding need for cooperation and peace.

Assistant director: Savvas Stroumpos. Composer: Panagiotis Velianitis. Actors: Ajila Hamzi, Prokopis Agathocleous, Evelina Arapidi, Erdogan Kavaz, Andreas Fylaktou, Niovi Charalambous, Sara Ipsa.
