Tomorrow will be all about children at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation when the day will bring a workshop for the morning crowd and a concert for those whose bedtime isn’t so early.
The workshop, which will run in two sessions, will introduce children from four to six-years-old to the art of printmaking. Drawing inspiration from symbols and shapes featured in the exhibition’s artworks, children will create their own stamps and then print them on fabric bags.
The workshops, part of a number of activities supplementing the Foundation’s Rooms to Contemplate: Content and Perspective of a Collection art exhibition, will be led by visual artist and printmaker Eleni Panagidou.
For the older crowd, that is children from 12-years-old, the legend of Don Quixote will become familiar during an educational concert at the foundation.
The Concordia String Quartet, together with Vicky Kalla and Panagiotis Tofi acting as a chorus, and Leda Karagianni narrating, will use this performance to teach children that “to change the world is not madness nor utopia, but justice,” as the Spanish masterpiece by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra states.
Based on this novel, which is considered to be one of the most inspired classics of modern Western literature, this musical event will flourish. The concert’s originality derives from the fact that a work of the Baroque era is revisited through a fresh look, using narration as a means to approach younger audiences in conjunction with rendering the story by means of contemporary dance and style.
