Stage Design for Karagkiozis Ektos
AWARD WINNING STAGE DESIGN REPRESENTING CYPRUS AT PRAGUE FESTIVAL
A shadow puppet´s revolution into a new dimension!
Open Arts, a theatre ensemble from Cyprus, presents “κaragiozis εxposed” at the Prague Fringe Festival, a contemporary take on Greek Shadow Puppet tradition.
Through modern physical theatre technique, experimental architecture, live original music and using the core of Shadow Puppet theatre, our performance explores the crossing of boundaries and coming to term with a new dimension.
An innovative craftsman experiments with his traditional tools, stretching them to extremes. He reaches a breaking point when Karagiozis, his protagonist puppet, revolts against him and escapes from behind the screen.
