The truth about Venus

Dates: 28,29, 30 July, 20:30 – 22:30

The musical The Truth about Venus is an original composition based on interviews with people of Pafos – locals, migrants and visitors. It is an investigation into the beauty which lies in the World (centering around Pafos) which aims at tracing the secret substance of beauty, located in faces, landscapes, animals and everyday activities. Drawing on the work of the theatre company Rimini Protokoll, Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis and the musical London Road by the National Theatre (UK), the performance tries to bring form through drama and music to the concept of beauty in stories and myths.

George Rodosthenous is an Associate Professor in Theatre Directing at Leeds University and combines his academic career with his work as an award-winning artist in music and theatre Directing.
Music by Dimitris Zavros.
