The Kato Pyrgos Tillyrias hosts the first outdoor theater festival in Cyprus
Watching a theater under the sky with the stars!
On 25th and 26th August, Anti-Scene is the starting point for a special cultural event in one of the most beautiful parts of our country.
Take your pillow and come! This year the first outdoor theater festival is being held in Kato Pyrgos Tillyrias. The idea of watching theater while camping was made with the goal and focus on the viewer.
Watching a theater by the sea, between the eucalyptus, under the sky with the stars...is very exciting!
The goal of the festival is the combination of natural beauty with the art of theater! It is something very original because the performers come out of their theater scenes and set up their artistic speech in the Kato Pyrgos as other campers. The focus of the idea is for the viewer to feel the theatrical experience out of the theater, with the background of the sea and the sound of the waves!
Apart from the four different performances that will take place in the "Anti-Scene", after previous successful presentations last season, there will still be conversations about the theater as well as a theater workshop, perfomance and stand-up comedy.
Tickets: Pre-sale from Tickethour Cyprus (www.tickethour.com.cy) has begun and will continue until Thursday August 24th until 16.00.
General entrance €20 for both days. Cost of use of the camping space for setting up a camping tent is €5.
Stay: The campsite includes toilets and showers.
In case guests do not want to camp at the campsite, they have the option of renting rooms in the village, but it is recommended that they make their reservations in time.
Transfer / Route: Daily there is a Nicosia-Kato Pyrgos bus service and vice versa (via a busy, one-hour journey, € 1.50 a ticket). For reservation of seats, the public is kindly requested to contact Mr. Georgios Kotzias (99333073).
The duration of the journey by road from Paphos to Polis Chrysochous is about two hours, while through Troodos about an hour and a half.
