The Play That Goes Wrong I Alpha Cyprus (6+)


ALPHA Cyprus presents the Olivier-awarded farce The Play That Goes Wrong. The most talked-about play of the year, staged in more than 30 countries, comes to the Rialto Theatre for a limited number of shows. 


ALPHA Cyprus presents the Olivier-awarded farce The Play That Goes Wrong written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. In the most talked-about play of the year, a group of amateur, non-talented actors attempt to put on a murder mystery: “The Murder at Hammerson’s Residence”. The misleading set, the actors’ scarce talent and the technical staff’s lack of experience will all lead them to awkward situations on stage – disasters which the so-called actors will attempt to conceal. Laughter is guaranteed – yet not as much as the physical integrity of the cast.


Are you intrigued by disasters? Are mistakes your secret hobby? Do you feel like freeing the oppressed criminologist you were hiding inside? If the answer is yes, then the amazing cast will take you on a hilarious ride: The Play that Goes Wrong! Book your tickets timely: this will be the only thing that won’t be going wrong! In Greek.

Performing Silence – Petros Konnaris Ι FlashArt 2023


There is something very touching in spending time to observe small details and figure out what else lies underneath the surface. To observe the hands travelling to each other, to listen to a deep breath below the mask, to accompany one’s journey to preciousness and _______. 


Performing Silence is a research project exploring how to listen to something subtle that is present but not shouting, a softness that is usually oversaturated by noise and loudness.


Two years after the first presentations in Nicosia (at ex Drive Drive) and the 8hour performance at the Cyprus Pavilion Anachoresis: Upon Inhabiting Distances of the 17th Architecture Venice Biennale, the ten performers meet all together at the Rialto Theatre in a process of exploring the density of silence, as well as activating the silent and unseen moments.


During this 1h, you are invited to walk around, pay attention to the silence and those unseen moments, wait, take a deep breath, listen, and be active even when you are silent and standing still.


Artistic Direction: Petros Konnaris

With: Eleana Alexandrou, Georgia Andreou, Pascal Caron, Athina Georgiou, Annie Khoury, Marilena Kyriacou, Kalia Maliali, Arianna Marcoulides, Despina Michaelidou, Alexis Vassiliou

Sound design: Panos Bartzis 

Visual Art Installation: Kyriakos Theocharous

MOS - Open House Festival I Dance House Lemesos


Two performers enter into discourse with a disparate series of images and seek to impart their own transcription in space. The body and (micro-)movements co-exist with curious objects and materials to act as a means of sound production. The material is intensified, exploded, paused, repeated, and distorted in order to bolster the sound experience. The performers become the intermediaries between archive and audience, offering up their own personal takes, composing their own sound adaptation of a non-linear cinematic script, and choosing, at the end of the day, what could possibly be heard.


Within the scenic formulation, individual pieces of information are teased out of the reused materials, thus inviting audience members to generate new connections and interrelations. They find themselves successively transformed into listeners of a makeshift and heterogeneous soundtrack that unfolds before them. 


MOS is a scenic game operating in among the conspicuous and hidden relations that exist between movement, sound, and image, amplifying narratives that arise out of the mutual interplay and co-existence of seemingly incongruous archival sources, thus bringing visibility to elements that cannot easily be seen, or heard.
