Jose finale and local talent to shine in festival

DRAMATIC modern dance comes to the atmospheric Salamis amphitheatre this week with an open-air performance of Frida by the Ankara State Opera and Ballet Modern Dance Troupe.

Jose finale and local talent to shine in festival

The show is lined up for Thursday as part of the 21st International Famagusta Festival of Art, Culture and Tourism, which launched with a costumed spectacular at the town's Venetian Palace last Saturday. 
The festival runs until Wednesday, July 19 offering an 11-event programme including a closing Salamis concert by '60s guitarist and singer-songwriter José Feliciano.
Frida tells the story of the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, her childhood struggle with polio and her unique “magic realist” self-portraits which became, following her untimely death,  a lasting symbol for Mexicans, feminists and the LGBT movement.
The two-act, 70-minute show premiered in April 2016 in Turkey and is choreographed by Özgür Adam İnanç.
Upcoming concerts include a Sunday July 10 performance by İzmir born singer, songwriter and actor Murat Dalkılıç followed by a Monday July 11 concert by Turkish Cypriot teacher, composer and musician Kurutay Akbay and his Dream Band.
Mr Akbay promises a performance packed with local talent which will see him joined by Girne expats' favourite guitarist Naim Korudağ, with Hüseyin Kırmızı, Oytun Ersan, Yusuf Çerkez, Oğuz Abadan, Çağıl İşgüze and Oytun Küşkü.
Two concerts in the walled city's Othello Tower on July 17 and 18 feature the Bekir Küçükay and  Silk Road Orchestra on the Monday and fusion jazz and folk music composer, performer and scholar Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol on the Tuesday.
All events begin at 9pm and tickets are priced at 30TL for all Salamis concerts -- except the José Feliciano finale for which entrance costs 40TL -- and for events at Othello Tower, 20TL.  
Tickets are available from Deniz Plaza, including the Girne branch on Mete Adanır Caddesi, or from Gazimağusa Municipality by phoning 630 0500 before 2pm, or before 5pm on Thursdays.
