Myths and tales along the divide

What do we know of each other in today’s divided Cyprus? What are the myths and tales that molded and shaped our common past, the multi-form and long-lasting? How are the personal stories and narratives of the present formed by our heritage, upbringing and societal structures?

With the art of theatre as a tool and the power of personal and collective memory, Achim Wieland and Marios Ioannou unfold, with the help of group of people-performers, the yarns of time through a never-ending dialogue, interweaving blurred and indelible memories with untold stories and forgotten myths, unacknowledged guilt and old wrong-doings. Through thematic research, the workshop encourages the participants in an honest and objective ‘soul exchange’, aiming at producing a new perspective from this shared dialogue. A dialogue which will culminate in a theatrical performance full of all the colours of human life.

The performance is in english (with greek, turkish, armenian and maronite text elements)

Direction/Dramaturgy: Achim Wieland, Marios Ioannou
Collaborating Dramaturge: Ellada Evangelou
Director’s Assistants: Izel Seylani, Marianna Vouga
