…Causing Artistic Trouble

for Larnaca and its [beautiful] corners...

Friday 12th October 2012 at Ermou Square | 4-10pm

This day is dedicated to Larnaca, its visitors and citizens. The artistic programme starting from early afternoon, transforms some of the most beautiful corners of Larnaca into a stage, with street theatre, educational activities for children, installations and live performances, interactive shows and an after party.

FIRST ATTEMPT is a 3-day project organised by Among the Ants, under the auspices of Larnaca municipality and funded by Europe Direct Larnaca. In collaboration with the Foundation of Cultural Creativity for Children & Young People (Larnaca), the Larnaca House of Letters & Arts and the Department of Music & Dance/BA Dance Studies of the University of Nicosia,
FIRST ATTEMPT is the first of a series of cultural activities in Cyprus leading up to Khaki Kite Street Arts Camp & Festival in 2013.

The artistic part of the project involves performances and artistic interventions in different public spaces of Larnaca; our intention is to offer audiences an opportunity to enjoy professional street theatre performances by European and Cyprus- based artists.

* The workshops were organized under the aegis of Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU and supported by Europe Direct Larnaca. Part of the festival was supported by Larnaca Municipality.
