ARCHÆOMUSICA
‘Music is the “sound-evidence” of Europe’s ancient common roots’

Monday 29th May
From:
08:30 - 18:30

Music can sometimes reveal little known facts about ancient civilizations. It created a network of relationships and points of contact among European peoples long before we became aware of this common identity.

This exhibition, which includes multimedia features and interactive installations with the use of 3D technology, allows visitors to admire and fully experience the prodigious reality of the ancient musical instruments and their amazing journey through time and space from the origins of the European musical tradition. The exhibition ARCHÆOMUSICA tours Europe stops in Pafos this summer. The mosaics of the Roman music scenes depicted here were the inspiration for the exhibition in Cyprus.

Exile (Greece, Cyprus, Iran)

Exile Greece Cyprus Iran

Exile (Greece, Cyprus, Iran)

Sunday 28th May
From:
20:00- 21:00

The history of humanity is a long, painful history of exile. For the Christians, there is reference in the Bible of Adam and Eve being exiled from Paradise; for the Muslims, this expulsion is the exile away from Mekka. For dissidents, exile has always been a sad reality and a means of punishment or even physical annihilation. Millions of people have been led (by force or forcedly “voluntarily”) to exile, for political, religious and national reasons, or even in search of a better future, as in the case of migrants. Exile however is not only physical; it is also an emotional and psychological condition. Nostalgia seems to have been memorised in our DNA, and we are forever seeking a paradise lost, a utopic land, even if our present reality is not by definition difficult. Therefore, exile is a current concern, be it in its physical or its spiritual dimension. Kyriakos Kalaitzides, composer and artistic director of the ensemble En Chordais is one of the most important researchers of the Mediterranean music tradition. He also comes from a family of refuges from the Pontus and Cappadocia, and he has dealt with the issue of exile in depth, in an enchanting fusion of eastern and western music, of sensitivity and virtuosity.

Common Ground

Thursday 27th April
From 20:00 to 23:00

Common Ground aims to create an artistic dialogue between children from the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities through workshops on the distinctively Cypriot art technique of cementography. Introduced for the first time by the innovative Cypriot artist Christoforos Savva in the 1960’s, this relatively new art form is the basis of this bi-communal project. The project invites the group of children from Pafos to use clay and stones collected on the “other side” to create cementography works imagining ‘A day in the life of Kyrenia’ (in the Northern part of Cyprus) and children from Kyrenia to create cementography works with materials from the South imagining ‘A day in the life of Pafos’. Both groups of children are confronted with the life of a city “on the other side” which they have never even visited. Bahar Chirali is in charge of the project in Kyrenia. Sylvia Nikolaides and Nicolas Iordanou will create a short documentary about the project which will be presented at the Ibrahim’s Khan. Curated by Miriam McConnon.

J. S. Bach looks towards Easy and West

Wed 19th April
From 20:00 to 21:30

The concert highlights the importance of the Byzantine (East) and the Catholic (West) tradition in the evolution of European music. It revolves around the Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach (Trio String) combined with hymns and improvisations.
The event is part of the series of event titled: Music at the Threshold, which includes two other concerts linked by the particularities of the countries where they will be held, promoting the general co-existence between historical periods, cultures and traditions which (at first) seem to have nothing in common, but music is the link between them. The inspiration for these events is drawn from the routes followed by Kings, Apostles, conquerors and others who left their mark on Pafos. The stages will be set at the temple of Agia Kyriaki, the pillar of St. Paul and the grave of the Danish King Eric I (also known as Eric the Good), connecting the past to the present and the modern travellers to those who have passed by and left their traces in Pafos.

Young artists exchange ideas to create common innovative works of public art to be placed in Pafos. In collaboration with other European Capitals of Culture ten young artists living in European, Asian and Middle Eastern cities will get the chance to explore new means of communication and issues of personal and collective interest. The artists will work in pairs (initially long-distance) on paintings, sculptures, new media, installations and architecture united by the common feature of public art. The artists will then meet to finalise and present their projects which will permanently be displayed in public places in Pafos.
