Uncle Vanya – Anton Chekhov Ι Dionysus Theatre

 

Directed by Avra Sidiropoulou, Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya takes place in 19th century rural Russia.

 

The arrival of professor Serebryakov and his second, much younger wife, Yelena, to his farmstead, managed by Vanya and his niece, Sonia, disrupts the everyday life of its tenants. A series of revelations and confessions lead to the realisation that people’s lives remain captive to their illusions. Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya is a shocking reflection of human fate, beyond time and space.

Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes I Antilogue Theatre 

 

The Antilogue Theatre, faithful to its appointment with the young friends of theatre, presents the children's production "Don Quixote", the classic literary masterpiece by the Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes, in a theatrical adaptation and directed by Irene Andronicus. A bizarre dreamy knight moves among us. He cooks in our kitchen, sits in our living room, opens the door to our nursery and plays with all our toys. Like a child, only he's grown up now. The look on his face is funny makes us laugh. But if you look closely you will see his sad eyes. His reflection in the mirror is the same as yours Even his voice is like yours.


-What are you doing here, knight with the sad face?
-I came to change the world.
-You are mad.
-If you want to change the world, it's not madness, it's not utopia. It's justice!

The uncompromising hero entertains young and old alike with his unrepentant childish fantasy of trying to change the world. Theatre helps children unleash their imagination. It teaches values, talks about friendship, solidarity and volunteering. It addresses everyday issues in an understandable way. Children's theatre contributes to a better expression of emotions and develops sociability. For children who dream of a better and more beautiful future. Full of joy, love and justice. For the children of the heart. Suitable for all. In Greek

Premiere 3 Ι Cyprus Symphony Orchestra

 

We kick off the New Year with CySO’s Honorary Conductor Alkis Baltas on the podium to present a truly inspiring programme with music from the latter part of the 20th century.  

 

Nicolas Economou, besides being a superb pianist, was also a gifted composer. The orchestra proudly presents four of the pieces from his solo piano etudes titled Childhood Whims, especially orchestrated for this programme by Alkis Baltas. The Four Temperaments by Paul Hindemith is known both as a concert piece as well as music for a neoclassical ballet commissioned and choreographed by George Balanchine for the Ballet Society in New York. Pianist Vicky Stylianou will be the soloist in this gem. Alkis Baltas describes his piece Music for Youth as “a composition addressed to those who always maintain a youthful temperament, regardless of their age!”

 

The highlight of the evening will surely be Cantus Arcticus or Concerto for birds and orchestra by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, which will receive its Cyprus premiere. It is a highly original and evocative work that incorporates the recorded song of birds from the Arctic Circle.

Orchestra 4All 3 - Peter and the Wolf - Family Concerts

Cyprus Symphony Orchestra 

 

The Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev created the adventurous musical story Peter and the Wolf in which the instruments of the orchestra “recount” the tale in a unique musical manner, representing the protagonists: little Peter, a bird, a duck, a cat, Peter’s grandfather and a wolf that lurks in the forest! 

Come along to meet the joyful and bold strings, a chirping flute, an oboe gliding on the water, a clarinet leaping nimbly on the grass, a slowly walking bassoon with a frown on its face, the menacing horns and the banging timpani! 

Maestro Francis Nectarios Guy conducts the orchestra and actor Petros Georkadjis narrates the story.

The songs of Yiannis Spanos are written for all of us and have certainly accompanied us in some of our personal moments.

Schumann’s Fantasy in C major Op.17 and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.12.

 

The Daily Telegraph has characterized him as “a pianist of vision” and “an inspiring poet of the piano” and ‘Musical Opinion’ described him as “a true giant of the keyboard”. In Music and Vision, critic Bill Newman simply wrote:  “Tirimo's playing belongs to a past generation of 'greats'. Listening to him, I conjure up aural images of Solomon, Arrau, Kempff, Schnabel and Rubinstein. Throughout the evening, one was consistently aware that this supreme musician placed himself entirely at the service of the composer.”

A unique example of verbal brutality, iconoclastic action and political reflection, it vigorously denounces the mechanisms of oppression and control used by social institutions and authorities that seek to undermine and ultimately eliminate any possibility of free expression.

 

Directed by: Euripides Dikaios

 

With English and Turkish surtitles.

 

The performance contains strong language, scenes of violence, nudity, and simulated sexual activity.

The Bible: the complete word of God (Abridged)

Antilogos Theatre

 

“In the beginning”, as stated by a divine voice, “there was chaos”. But why stop there? The disorder continues in the middle and in the end of the Bible too! The Bible: the complete word of God (Abridged) by Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor is a witty, hilarious comedy striving to understand “authentic stories” that we came across early on in history. Unquestionably, the work, which “falsifies the most significant story ever acknowledged as a fact” contains exceptional, surrealistically theatrical moments. In this play, the ultimate religious question is one and only: does God have a sense of humour? Undoubtedly yes. Otherwise, why would he leave the Children of Israel wonder around the Middle East for 40 years just to offer them a piece of land without oil?

 

A barrage of images created by three actors-performers and a musician, in a show with singing, dancing and pondering on fundamental questions. “Should the Bible be interpreted literally”? Through comic situations, the four performers explore issues of religious freedom. A work reflecting on our responsibilities, our choices, limitations and freedom; reflecting on life itself.

To what extent have we been affected by the best-selling work of all times, even if we barely ever read it until the end?

Emptiness in Person – Akis Dimou | Theatro Dentro

 

How could a lethal necktie be related to a ménage à trois? A drug show in Madrid to a child of unknown father? Or the call of an oncologist to a dinner serving fried eels?

 

Four people —a theatre critic, his assistant, an internationally renowned fashion designer and the mysterious young man in her company— are all trying to settle old affairs in a middle-class apartment, in the summer of 2015 in Athens. The “sofa” acquires yet another role in the play, naturally symbolizing the inactiveness and apathy of our society.

Written by: Akis Dimou

Under the baton of the distinguished maestro Patrick Gallois, the concert starts with the delicacy of Gabriel Fauré's Pavane, an ethereal introduction setting the stage for an evening of French elegance.

Τhe principal flute soloist of the Orchestre de Paris, Vincent Lucas joins the Orchestra for the first time and will be showcasing his unparalleled artistry in Jacques Ibert's mesmerising Flute concerto. The piece exploits the flute's elegiac nature through intricate melodies and breathtakingly demanding passages.

The finale is expected intense, featuring Camille Saint-Saëns' Symphony no. 2, a work that unravels a dynamic interplay of musical elements, from the fascinating fugal interplay of the first movement to the vigorous finale.

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.

Erroneous Encounters I Panayiotis Tofi

 

The new choreographic work Erroneous Encounters directed, choreographed, and written by Cypriot creator Panayiotis Tofi, is an experimental movement-based journey accompanied by the live composition of electronic music and poetic text. Four performers and a music composer share the stage in a course of negotiation with the post-traumatic as autoimmune, dysfunction, distance, and the multiple symbolisms of emptiness. The work is a continuation of the creator’s research in both movement vocabulary and composition, with which he focuses on topics of emptiness and concealment, as well as the loss of empathy and autonomy as a characteristic of contemporary reality.

Performance: Damianos Aggelos Efstathiou, Ioannis Mamolis, Nikos Samouridis, Vasiliki Kypraiou

2 | Christos Thiveos, Panayiotis Margaris

Getting together in a band-like spirit, Christos Thiveos and Panayiotis Margaris join each other on stage, following last year’s successful series of concerts, presenting a renewed repertoire that includes old and recent hits.

The two Greek artists met in 1997 during the recording of the now-ageless Dearly I Loved You (Poso poli s’agapisa), sung by Christos Thiveos and performed by Panayiotis Margaris (classical guitar). With improvisations and constantly in tune with the audience, the two musicians built a subversive repertoire free from encumbrances, enriched with moving, personal, extroverted, and collective moments—all naturally blending together.

Christos Thiveos’ distinctive singing, reminiscing of The Usual Suspects band era, in combination with songs written by Thanos Mikroutsikos, Vassilis Dimitriou and other renowned composers, seamlessly blend with the exceptional compositions and instrumental artistry of Panayiotis Margaris’ solo tracks. The concert’s highlight will be the presentation of their first joint song, with music composed by Panayiotis Margaris and lyrics written by Odysseas Ioannou.

Concert 2 is a music show for two musicians united in deep appreciation and connection, as well as a performance game for the eternal two: musicians and audience alike.

Shedding new light on tales

 

Theatre shows for children based on the educational toy series “Makers Will Make: STEAM Toys” in the frame of FlashArt 2024.

Driven by their desire to combine culture with technology, three women joined forces to design and create the educational toy series titled “Makers Will Make: STEAM Toys”. Rooted in the Cypriot folk culture and nature, the toys were manufactured using the rapid prototyping technique in combination with traditional methods. The toys received the “Top design award” - European Product Design Award.

In narrative form, the shows gradually acquire an interactive character, enabling young participants to create their own set design and figures using the ingredients of toys. Landscapes engraved on transparent plastic, Cyprus bird figures, Spanos, the forty dragons, and the smartphone light will all immerse young participants into an enchanting journey, from 2D to 3D. At the same time, they will tackle current issues such as migration, acceptance, and diversity.

Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival 2024

AiNA performance installation exhibition by Suzana Phialas

 

AiNa comes to life as an IRL simulation of the artist’s post-photographic Ai series “Performing anatomies”. Phialas’ work & improvisations with the performers are based on images & videos of a custom AI model she has trained. "I think of the still image works as “microcosmic performances" extracted from the fabric of daily existence. Each image encapsulates mundane moments and familiar scenarios, seamlessly weaving together domestic interiors and outdoor settings. While universally relatable, these depictions are elevated by a nuanced interplay of wit and irony, infusing them with a distinctive flavor. The resulting amalgam is an assortment of absurd, illogical, and whimsically surreal episodes plucked from the canvas of ordinary life". 

Strobe lighting effects are used during this performance

 

Organized by the Department of Contemporary Culture, Deputy Ministry of Culture and the Rialto Theatre.

 

Tickets: €8 (€30 for all performances)
