Spanos and the Forty Dragons 

Join us from July 1st to July 8th for an extraordinary performance in different locations in London, Birmingham and Coventry! Get your tickets below.

The choice of the specific folk fairy tale was not in any way incidental. The tale refers to Spano’s effort to defeat evil, the dragons, to bring water to the village. The tale was deployed by changing it in order to highlight its parabolic value. In this case, there are two young men – a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot -, trying to bring the Water – the Peace, the prosperity to the village by defeating evil – the dragons. They collaborate and manage to overcome obstacles, to defeat the dragons – the war, the hatred, the envy, the foreigners who plunder the natural wealth of their village, the separation, the hunger, the poverty – and jointly open the trench, and the water runs.
