Pafos2017 aims to establish an annual International Festival of Monodrama in 2017. The experience acquired through the Platform of Monodrama and its international participants (2015) and the corresponding Competition Platform for Cypriot Productions (2016) were carried out to support this endeavour. As a place at the crossroad of cultures, Pafos is in a privileged position to create an initiative which will prove to be beneficial at an artistic, touristic and financial level. Critically acclaimed international performances are invited to Pafos, establishing Monodrama as an autonomous theatre genre in our country, with an increasing popularity and aesthetic value. Artistic director: Minas Tigkilis (Director and member of the Committee of International Monodrama of the Cyprus International Theatre Centre).
