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 a professor at Leeds University and combines his academic career with his
work as an award-winning artist in music, cinematography and theatre. Music
by Dimitris Zavros. Written by Stergios Mavrikis. Costume design by Michalis
Christodoulou. Choreography by Ricardo Meneghini.
