Our first residency was in March 2013 led by Cypriot theatre director, Athina Kasiou. thina is the Artistic Director of OPEN ARTS where she has directed and produced pioneering big scale site-specific productions in Cyprus. he is also regularly invited to direct for the National Theatre of Cyprus where she has collaborated with acclaimed international artists. For Theatre of Europe Athina will be developing a new site-specific adaptation of the classic play by Pirandello, Six Characters in Search of an Author. In the Autumn we will be hosting theatre director and playwright Stéphane Olry and choreographer Sandrine Buring from France. They collaborated on a piece entitled CH(OSE) / HIC SUNT LEONES which was performed at last year’s 66th Avignon Festival and is based on their experiences over two years at the hospital for multi-handicapped children in La Roche-Guyon. Their powerful, moving and visceral creation will travel to London as part of Theatre of Europe in an English language translation with a London-based actress and singer.
