On Wednesday 14th June, The International School of Paphos (ISOP) had the honor to participate in the musical performance of ‘Aphrodite Gardens’ at the Ancient Odeon, an event of PAPHOS 2017. Our teacher, Miss Stephanie Mavrokordatou, and our students Bianca Christofides, Panareti Neophytou, Elena Erodotou and Michael Perikleous narrated, danced and re-enacted scenes, enriching the music of the ‘Akamas Duo’. Our actors revived the stories, images and scents of Aphrodite’s birthplace in the imagination of the audience. Traditional songs alternated with music that highlighted mythology.
Nikolas Kyriakou and Iasonas Keramides were responsible for the music, orchestrations and singing. The production was directed by none other than Minas Tinglis, with scenography and visual editing by Giorgos Papadopoulos and costumes by Rena Perdiki. Narration and movement-choreography were done by our very own Stephanie Mavrokordatou. Other dancers involved were Kristia Iereidi and Nandia Georgiadou.
