Eternal Voyage

 

A spectacular piece of outdoor theatre on and around Pafos Castle and harbour, exploring the prevailing themes of ‘ World Travellers’. Eternal Voyages used the natural elements as its dramatic backdrop to tell the stories of three travellers descending on Pafos by land, sea and air. A truly multi-sensory experience as a dramatic narrative unfolds through high quality digital animation accompanied by heightened dramatic moments of live performance, including text and song; both in English and Greek. Celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Pafos, the show also included dance, mass choreography, processional performance, acrobatics, a water spectacle, dynamic lighting and sound design accompanied by an original musical score and sumptuous special effects including a pyrotechnic final.
