MOON AND STARS | M. Yourcenar – C.P. Cavafy Charlotte Rampling
British actress Charlotte Rampling, Greek-French actor Polydoros Vogiatzis and guitarist Varvara Gyra present on stage the literary encounter of the Greek poet Cavafy (1863-1933) and French novelist Marguerite Yourcenar (1903-1987), edited by Jean-Claude Feugnet. Belgian-born Yourcenar was the first to translate Cavafy into French and was a knowledgeable Cavafy critic and scholar. Cavafy’s poetry permeates the performance, while Yourcenar’s texts with the female genius and sensitivity they exhume reveal secret aspects of Cavafy’s poetry, emphasising on love and death, loneliness, and political, existential and physical decline.
Τhe performance will be in English and Greek
Tickets: €20 (Standard), €15 (students, unemployed, pensioners)

As part of the European Capital of Culture’s programme, the Cyprus Theatre Organisation presents Alki Zei’s masterpiece for both children and adults. The play explores the time when in 1940, WWII breaks out in Athens. Under these new circumstances, Petros goes on a long walk, a walk filled with adventures, feelings, experiences and knowledge that will enrich his young soul and will make him love his country. His school closes; his uncle Angelos goes off to war; his mother starts counting the food supplies in the cupboards.
