21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival – Switzerland

Creatures with extremely diverse qualities meet in this dance piece. Through their joint experiences they slowly begin to realise that there is opportunity in diversity, if they join forces and complement each other. Together they succeed in overcoming obstacles and discover new perspectives on even the trickiest of situations. The three company members tumble their way through a colourful range of concise episodes and images that draw their character from the imaginative and varied stage design, the props and, in particular, the costumes. It only requires balloons, tights and – above all – heaps of paper to realise it. It is just unbelievable how much you can do with it! No doubt – after this performance the children who have watched the piece will leave the theatre with tons ideas to develop and incorporate into their own play.

TratSik String Quartet Project

After their three successful concerts last April, “TratSik String Quartet” is appearing on stage again, now at Palio Xidadiko (Limassol) on July 1st, at 19:00.

“TratSik String Quartet” is a newly formed, exciting chamber music project that blends Cypriot traditional music with the sound of the string quartet through contemporary compositional techniques. All the pieces of the concert were commissioned especially for the specific project for which the idea is to have the traditional melody of every song unaltered where composers could freely experiment with harmonic structure, rhythm, form and timber. Both composers and performers deal with traditional music with appreciation, but also avoid using the standardized way of approaching it.

The result of this unique project is an unexpected meeting of enjoyment for both “Western art music” and traditional Cypriot music lovers.

General admission for the concert is 10€.

When: Sunday, July 1st, 2018
Time: 19:00 – 21:00
Where: Old Vinegar House
34 Genethliou Mitella Street
Limassol, Limassol 3036, Cyprus
