Pafos2017 Open scene Mouttalos
The revitalised Mouttalos area creates a natural backdrop used to host open air events in an area that until very recently had been neglected. Creative dialogue and co-existence will be promoted through a series of theatre productions and other events referring to the memories the area carries. The Goethe Institute, together with Achim Wieland and Marios Ioannou organise a series of events highlighting the myths and narrations about a common past as well as the way in which one community sees the other.
Curated by Sholeh Zahraei, a series of films on the Mediterranean region will also be projected, in an effort to view the world through the eyes of others. On June 28th 2017, the Cypriot singer Umut Albayark and a group of musicians will present traditional and contemporary Cypriot and Mediterranean songs. In November 2017, the art group Apus Apus (from Cyprus, England and Finland) will reside in Mouttalos for a month and will be engaged in events on art and cultural identity. Curated by Constantinos Achilleos and Alexia Achilleos.
