Museum-Workshop of Shadow Theatre (Karagiozis) Pafios

The Museum-Workshop of Shadow Theatre Pafios aims to present and promote the folk culture of our country. The museum exhibited figures, theatrical objects and family artifacts of the popular karagioz player Christodoulos Pafios (1904-1987), his son Achilleas Pafios (1928-1987) and grandson Christos A. Pafios, items which demonstrate the survival of folk art of Cyprus Shadow Theatre Karagiozis. In the museum area there is also a manufacturing figures workshop.

The museum is open to the public for guided tour and acquaintance with the heroes of the Shadow Theatre. During their visit they can learn about manufacturing of figures and how to becοme a “Karagioz player” as they can stand on our stage and learn how to act. Also, we are organizing theatrical shows of Karagiozis at schools, in festivals and culture events all over the country.
