Peri Poleos – La Boîte 67 – 1967 – 2017
The “Peri Poleos” programme of Pafos2017 makes a stop at the legendary cafe La Boîte 67, where it all began exactly 50 years ago. During the magical and most turbulent decade of the 20th century, La Boîte 67 became the place where painting, poetry and singing met with the artistic explorations, the new trends, the political discussions and the concerned youth of the time.
The “Peri Poleos” programme records the history of the La Boîte 67 through the narrations of its owners, Andreas and Athena Charalabides, and through the recollections of its first regulars. It aspires to recompose the ambience of that period through photographs and songs of the time. It revives the story of the La Boîte 67 from 1967 to this day through video projections, interviews, photographs and a music programme with the musicians who have marked the place over time.
