Cyprus : 3rd Cyprus International Performance Art Festival

The 3rd Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) will take place at ARTos Foundation, in Lefkosia, on the 20th and 21st of June 2015.

The festival’s program consists of Live Performances, Exhibition and Screenings that will take place at the spaces of ARTos Foundation.

The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) is a thematic festival with its 3rd edition focusing on humor. This year the festival is entitled "intending humorously", and looks on how performance artists use humor and its varieties in their work. Also this year the festival introduces the programs “Space for New”, a program for the support of newcomer performance artists, and “Performance Art Occasion” where a special guest from the field of performance art creates a special occasion for the audience.

The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) is the first and only event in Cyprus created for and dedicated exclusively to performance art. This initiative brings together, supports and promotes the work of internationally renowned artists and young emerging artists from around the world, for whom Performance Art is the primary medium of their artistic creation.

The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) aims to introduce the compound nature of performance art in the local community and enhance Cyprus’ art scene, whilst encouraging relationships with local, national and international networks. The festival’s activities are addressed to both artists and the general public. The festival creates a common ground for artists, curators, critics, cultural producers, art students and the audience, as an occasion for exchange, encounter and collaboration.

The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) is a not-for-profit initiative realized through the immense effort to establish an innovative yearly event. The third festival is made real upon the continuous effort of its team, the support of the participating artists and the generosity of its collaborating partners, supporters and sponsors. The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) exists under the umbrella of the Cyprus International Performance Art Society (CIPAS), a non-profit organization created for and dedicated to Performance Art, having its base in Nicosia, Cyprus.
