MARCOU DRAKOU SQUARE
STREET ART SQUARE FESTIVAL
Street Art is a form of art which during the last few years has developed rapidly worldwide. Its dynamism, immediacy, its critical dimension and acute humour, are characteristic elements that have given it life and have turned it into a pure part of the urban environment. Curated by Yiannis Sakellis, Street Art will ‘invade’ areas of the city, converting them into landmarks of the city centre and rearranging the mapping of our daily life.
At the same time, presentations and screenings are organised at Kimonos Art Center.
Participating artists: Millo (Italy), Bane (Switzerland), Pest (Cyprus), Usugrow (Japan), TAXIS (Greece), Mattia Campo dall’ Orto (Italy), Elmer Tunistra (The Netherlands), BillyGEE (Greece), LUNE82 (Greece), Alex Martinez (Greece), Batu Gundal (Cyprus), Bankrupt.CY (Cyprus), Charis Christoforou (Cyprus), Μeats (Switzerland).
Supported by: EU-Japan Fest, Embassy of Italy in Cyprus, Leuwarden 2018, Kimonos Art Center, StreetartCY.

THE CARTE BLANCHE TRIBE IN PAFOS (90’)
From Ibrahim’s Khan as their point of departure, Carte Blanche theatre company will create an innovative performance, emphasising on the audience’s experiences and the interaction between actors and audience.

The theatre company, which is based in Viborg, Denmark, stages productions of international interest. Their performances are linked, in a very special way, to the locations in which they are presented as well as with other art forms. Artistic director: Sara Topsøe-Jensen.

Trails of Memories
The almost deserted old city centre of Pafos emerges as an echo of a forgotten social and cultural reality. The project records the multiple socio-historic layers, as they appear through the paths of collective and personal memories. A series of site-specific performances, in key-places in Mousallas area, orchestrate a new narrative about the relationship between dancers, place and audience. At the same time, an exhibition with rare archival and audiovisual material, bridges all levels of collective memory and awareness through personal testimonies.
