Forbidden Stories is the third part of a trilogy on the themes of “Power and Collective Memory” created by the theatre group “Ludens Ensemble” and included in the programme of events of the European Capital of Culture Pafos 2017.
Forbidden Stories is a multimedia theatre performance that explores the theme of borders through true stories of solidarity that took place in the separated island of Cyprus. The violence following independence in 1960 culminated in 1974 with a failed coup de ta organised by Greek Nationalists. Subsequently, the Turkish state occupied the northern part of the island, creating the legacy of intercommunal violence between Greek and Turkish Cypriots explored by this riveting production
The performance aims at creating a platform that will function as a bridge between the two communities to gradually form a common narrative about ‘life’ in “Cyprus.
Ludens Ensemble is an Edinburgh-based theatre group that works with new media creating performances that ebb and flow between the aesthetics of critical distance and immersive experience.
