Performing words

By Maria Gregoriou

The third Sardam Literature Festival will make us mad about literature on Friday in Limassol and on Saturday in Nicosia.

The out of the box (as organising writer Maria A. Ioannou and the group aRttitude put it) literature festival will present the work of writers from Cyprus and abroad in alternative, performance and mixed media ways.

Expect a poetry slam, sound poetry, interactive writing-related software and lots of innovation and experimentation.

This is not just reading, it is performing at its best but that is not all, there will also be workshops as well as parallel events and installations.

All details can be found on the website, but some of the writers who will be taking to the stage are Erina Charalambous, Elena Hileti, Marianna Florou, Marilena Zackheos, Andreas Tsiakos, Ernesto Estrella Cozar, Tobias Kunze and more.

Visit to get all the details.

Annual alternative literature festival. October 2-4. Theatro Ena, Limassol on Friday and Artos Foundation, Nicosia on Saturday, and Dance House, Limassol on Sunday. 8.30pm. €5. Tel: 99-404072
