LEFKOSIA (NICOSIA) FRI, 1 JUNE

Musical Titans In the Nicosia concert, the CySO will perform Syrian composer Kareem Roustom’s work «Dabke» (stamping of the feet), a folk-dance native to the Levant and widely performed at weddings and other joyous occasions. Mozart’s Symphony no. 39 may well be the least popular of the composer’s three last symphonies, but it’s no less a masterwork than the other two. Granted, it doesn’t have the tragic romanticism of the 40th or the magnificent heroics of the 41st (the Jupiter), with its hallmarks however no less musical but simply more difficult to pinpoint; a work unjustifiably underrated… As for Beethoven's 5th, it’s probably the most well-known piece of western music in the world. The famous four opening notes are so ingrained in people's minds that they've become an icon of classical music! And no wonder - its catchy rhythm is used as the basis. Venue: Pallas Theatre (Rigainis & Arsinois corner, Pafos Gate Old Lefkosia, T. +357 22410181) Time: 20:30 Entrance: €12|€7 for 18-26 yrs & pensioners |€5 for -18 yrs For further information log in to cyso.org.cy

Filep Motwary: In Parallel _ 2 out of 5

MON, 4 JUNE

During his eight-year tenure as a self-taught photographer and portraitist, Filep Motwary has captured the changing face of Fashion and Beauty as well as created his own visual language and approach communicating both to the outside. Motwary was initially trained as a fashion designer and worked for prestigious houses such as Dior and Galliano, Chloe as well as through his own brand until 2009. This dual identity led him to conceive and curate last year’s exhibition ‘Haute-a-Porter’ at the Modemuseum Hasselt and the publication of its best-selling accompanying book. There he investigated the fine line that separates or ultimately unifies Couture and Pret-a-Porter. In this new project under the aegis of Loukia & Michael Zampelas Art Museum, an association of excellence in Arts and creative expression, Motwary focuses on

“MEDITATIONS” This exhibition, given the role of ‘Magnum Photos’ in the art of photography, and the recording of important moments in history, the society and nature, aims at highlighting the relationship between specific photographers of this organisation and ancient monuments throughout Europe, including Cyprus. The unique insight into the sphere of archaeological heritage, as this is presented in these works of art, creates another context for these monuments, across time and space, as they become eternal within a different perspective. As the objective of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 is to reinforce the relationship between society and our culture, this exhibition constitutes the best way to highlight this special kind of art, but also our culture. The photographers are Josef Koudelka, George Rodger, Nikos Ekonomopoulos, David Seymour, Ferinando Scianna, Herbert List, Elliot Erwitt and Micha Bar Am. Their photographs are accompanied by quotes taken from poems, composed by distinguished poets. Venue: Τhe courtyard of the Cyprus Museum (1 Mouseiou Str., Lefkosia) TUE, 19 JUNE – SAT, 30 JUNE

Apostolos Georgiou: A painting on separation Following the completion of the painting Untitled, 2012 and fascinated by the peculiar physiology of the represented headless figure the artist decided to keep it for himself. A few years later however, due to external pressure he came to the conclusion that he must part with it. Before the painting left his studio he decided to make a copy and shortly thereafter a second copy, turning this exercise of multiplication into a diptych. Six years later, on the occasion of the exhibition at The Island Club, Georgiou revisits this series of reiterations with a new drawing inviting the potential for a new narrative to arise.

Lipertis' songs Larkos Larkos, from 2009 until today, has put music on to almost half of his dialectical poetry by D. Lipertis (64 melodic poems).
