Savel’s Red Dress coming up at Kypria


Savel’s Red Dress is a story about refugee children who have been forced to leave their homes and the people they love to find themselves in foreign places. A play based on Marina Michaelidou Kadi’s award-winning book is bringing the story to life this October as part of the Kypria International Festival.

Savel is the protagonist of the story who leaves her home and everything else she loved and travels to a distant land. The only thing she can take with her is the red dress her grandmother gave her as a gift. Savel can’t bear to be without it. The story emphasises that the journey does not end with the safe arrival of a child at his/her destination. Equally important is his/her integration and adaptation to the new environment; reception and treatment always play a significant role in this.

Antilogos Theatre presents the play on Saturday, October 2 at Rialto Τheatre. Savel’s Red Dress will be performed in various cities with the following performance set for Larnaca’s Municipal Theatre George Lykourgos on October 9, Markideio Theatre on October 10 and two more shows in Nicosia, on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17.
