The Department of Modern and Contemporary Culture of the Deputy Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Rialto Theatre, announces the upcoming 24th edition of Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival. Silence and words, sounds and music featured in a choreographic panorama, held between 7 and 29 June 2023 at the Rialto Theatre in Limassol and at Nicosia Municipal Theatre. The universal language of dance interconnects the micro- with the macrocosm, against a landscape of memories, dreams and desires.
