April Programme 2024

4 THU 20:30 (60’)

Touch(ed) - Physical Plastic Ι FlashArt 2024


 A solo performance using autobiographical events to confront gender bias and cultural ideals around intimacy—in life and in art-making itself. Touch(ed) satirizes “slut-shaming” and the perceived vulgarity of the single woman versus the ideal of the nuclear family, and asks how performance can be a vehicle for transgressive ideals which prove difficult to uphold in real life. Arriving at the artist’s own trajectory as a married woman and mother, the work proposes that the popular cultural mythology of monogamy and motherhood is an elusive ideal for the de-sexualized mother-artist, who finds herself struggling to thrive amidst her physical metamorphosis and the demands of care-taking.

Conceived by performer/director Kestrel Farin Leah, the work collages movement and libretto with personal anecdotes and social media posts, while Yiannis Christofides’ live score combines electroacoustic soundscapes and experimental vocal processes, with music inspired by the song Gravity by “womb pop” musical artist They/Live. Leah’s story is echoed through visual artist Dasha Sur’s yarn sculptures, based on folkloric references to nefarious female spirits.

The Shooting Ground – Michalis Papadopoulos Ι Solo for Three


Solo for Three theatre group, in collaboration with Antilogos Theatre, presents the work of Michalis Papadopoulos titled The Shooting Ground. The play’s title is inspired by the “Shooting Range of Kaisariani”, a memorial site connected to the two hundred fighters who were executed in 1944 by the Nazis. The writer deliberately sets the plot in a flat near the Shooting Range to demonstrate how racism continues to pose a threat to places traditionally related to Resistance against fascism.


The plot is set in today’s world. Anna and Nicos, a couple in their late forties, are waiting for Costas, the artistic director of a festival, to promote Nicos’s most recent play. Nicos is a playwright and Anna is a TV news presenter. They have been together for years, in fact, for such a long time, that they grew weary of each other. Just before Costas arrives, their eighteen-year-old son (Aris) shows up, confessing that, together with his friend, they stabbed an immigrant, revealing that both are members of an extreme right-wing group. Aris’s confessions will shake the very foundation of the family and the couple’s existence. They will soon come to realise that they have not only been alienated from one another but also from their own child. Delving into their past, they will be urged to remember where they come from in order to draw strength and face the upcoming disaster. When the couple decides on their next steps, history seems to be repeating itself. While the couple is yet again waiting for Costas, Aris shows up, confessing this time that he has just been the victim of a homophobic incident. In this second version, the couple must fight against their prejudices as well as against homophobia, to continue co-existing with Aris.

The Shooting Ground tackles issues of homophobia and racism while also dealing with relationship and existential issues, with art and its evolution over time.

The good person of Szechwan by Bertolt Brecht

Cyprus Theatre Organisation 

In the remote Chinese province of Szechwan, the kind-hearted prostitute, Shen Teh, grapples with the contradictions of life and the daily grind in her attempt to survive. When the gods travel to Szechwan in search of kind and generous souls, only Shen Teh is willing to take them in. To thank her, they offer her money - but only on condition that she continues doing good. Shen Teh manages to buy a small tobacco shop, which is quickly overrun by dozens of her fellow citizens, all with extravagant demands. They ask her for so much, in fact, that she is forced to invent an alter ego in order to keep her shop afloat. And so she transforms herself into her antithesis, a hard-hearted “cousin”, the businessman Shui Ta. But how long will she be able to endure this split identity?

Director Kostas Silvestros immerses himself in the Brechtian universe in a production inspired by the ideals of the great writer and poet. He tells a story that resonates strongly in today's world, harnessing the energy and intensity of a diverse ensemble of experienced and younger actors, with Antonis Katsaris and Spyros Stavrinidis in the roles of the gods. The dual role of Shen Teh and Shui Ta is played by Marina Argyridou.
