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.
