Things to do Whats On The Cyprus Oscar Wilde Festival

The Cyprus Oscar Wilde Festival

‘’Life imitates art’’. The quote of the ‘’first modern man’’ as the great author Oscar Wilde was described, keeps being continuously confirmed- especially in the present world of extremes. The diverse personality, the subversive work and troubles life of this Irish creator, shadowed by his imprisonment and early death, still inspires poets, theatre play writers, intellectuals and, above all, his fanatic readers around the globe.
For the first time in Cyprus, a group of artists inspired by the huge legacy of Oscar Wilde, in cooperation with the Embassy of Ireland in Cyprus, organise ‘’The Cyprus Oscar Wilde Festival’’, in Nicosia, from 1 to 16 March 2019. The festival comprises performances, music, movie screenings, workshops, exhibition of artworks inspired by Wilde, round table on LGBT rights, litterature panel and other.
The festival involves storytellers, musicians, writers, actors, artists, activists and others while the events will take place in popular cultural spaces such as Artos Foundation, Soloneion Βοοκ Centre, Goethe-Institut Cyprus, Prozak cafe, Cine Studio-University of Nicosia and the Embassy of Ireland.
