Municipal Baths – Pafos Castle Square
The Summer Ηighlight of the European Capital of Culture Pafos2017 is a spectacular outdoor event that takes place on and around Pafos Castle and harbour, and explores one of the prevailing themes of the Pafos 2017 cultural programme ‘ World Travellers’. Eternal Voyages uses the natural elements as its dramatic backdrop to tell the stories of these three travellers descending on Pafos by land, sea and air.
Expect a truly multi-sensory experience as a dramatic narrative is told through projection, high quality digital animation and mapping accompanied by heightened dramatic moments of live performance including poetical text and song; both in English and Greek. Celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Pafos, the show also includes dance, mass choreography, processional performance, acrobatics, a water spectacle, dynamic lighting and sound design accompanied by an original musical score and sumptuous special effects including a pyrotechnic final.
