Aishe goes on vacation
The theatrical group Solo gia Treis which celebrates ten years of existence comes together with AntiLogos theatre and presents its new production "Aishe goes on holidays" in March and April 2017 in Nicosia. The play is based on Constantia’s Soteriou book with the same title, which won the «Athens Prize for Literature».
A Greek cypriot woman who lived secretly for more than thirty years as a Turkish cypriot, hiding her true identity from her surroundings and her son, watches her secret being revealed in 2004 when the checkpoints/barricades open in Cyprus. Her son crosses “over” and she finds herself faced with the biggest question a person can ask himself. “Who am I” or rather “can you change who you really are? “
Around her the worlds of the sister, the neighbor and the boss reflect the universe of the space being lost. And in the middle of all love and the choices we make for love.
The memories of a lost Cyprus, the war, the pain of the people that become prey of history but above all the identity, what you are what and you choose to be, are in the middle of the narration of the story of Eleni who became Hatice, a narration that reflects the contemporary history of Cyprus, of the last 50 years. The owls that bring bad news, the sour lemonades from our youth, Christ and Mohammed and the pathways of Ayios Kasiannos compose the frame of the history.
A history of love which does not reflect religions and colors but smells like Nicosia’s jasmine in the afternoon.
