Art Your Service – Kypria Festival Opening

September 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


On September 1st, art will encounter its audience at the town center where they will celebrate their reciprocal relationship. The concept for the Kypria opening is based on the project “The Performance Shop” by Lia Haraki, where live art becomes an essential part of everyday-ness. Artists will therefore present their work in the streets of the old City of Nicosia, inside the windows of shops, through alleys and squares. Creation will remind us once more, through its multiple forms and genres, how to be humans TOGETHER.

FIRST PART – Art in the City (18:00 – 20:00)
Locations of performances : Ledras Street, Onasagorou Street, Andreas Michaelides Textiles shop and Liana’s Boutique, 28th October Square (Parthenagogiou Faneromenis), Faneromenis Square.
