23rd Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival Artists from five countries in the opening performance

Four choreographers and four musicians coming from Lebanon, Japan, Palestine, Belgium, and Togo are meeting on stage over a banquet of food. They are coming from different continents, cultures and countries. They have different artistic experiences, different backgrounds and ideas. What connects them is their profession. They talk, drink, laugh, dance, and eat together.

The simplicity of this meeting would be a starting point to a more complex choreographic and conceptual performance structure. Beytna is a simple invitation to the home of the other: health, happiness, pleasure, compassion, and friendship. It is an invitation to the artist's profession and choreographic construction, as much as it is to the forms and situations of the past.

In this on stage meeting over a banquet of food, viewers are also invited!
