16 August - 16 September 2021

Restaging culture in the largest yard of the capital city, Faneromeni21 Art Festival welcomes Autumn in the last leg of this year’s events, that includes three fascinating performances: the interdisciplinary show “People of Faneromeni”, that employs drama, screenings and live music, as well as music concerts by The Amalgamation Project and Santouto, on 2, 9 and 16 September respectively.

 

On 2 September, research group “People of Cyprus” and “Yiasemin” group will venture into the “ecosystem” of Nicosia within-the-walls and along the periphery of Faneromeni, combining theatre with live music and video projections. In the show “People of Faneromeni”, Andreas Koutsoumbas, Despina Chrysanthou, Rafaella Kavazi and Mohammed Awwad, under the sound of Vassilis Philippou’s music, will take a virtual tour of the city streets with their audience in order to introduce them to people that had gone unremarked for years, but also to bring to light stories forgotten in memory’s drawers.

 

Punctual for their appointment with Faneromeni Festival, Vasiliki Anastasiou and “The Amalgamation Project” return to the stage of the Cultural Foundation’s yard, ready to take us on a unique musical journey, an amalgamation of East and West that wavers between Mediterranean and Balkan melodies through rich polyphonic tones.  In this year’s event, on September 9, The Amalgamation Project will perform traditional songs, rearranged by Ermis Michael, as well as his own compositions, interspersed with short narratives/poems.

 

Last, on 16 September, music band Santouto draws the curtain on this year’s Festival with traditional music, as they invite us to revisit the charms of our island with their concert “The heart’s window”.

 

 

All performances start at 21:00. Free admission.

 

On the nights of Faneromeni21 events, the museums and exhibitions of the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation will be open until midnight.
