Place:
United States, Astoria, NY 11105, Stathakion Cultural Center, 22-51 29th St., Astoria, NY 11105
Description:

This unique event will feature the screening of an original documentary in English by filmmaker Elena Maroulleti which traces back and highlights the centuries-old history and culture of Khirokitia, one of the most significant pre-historic sites of Cyprus and of the eastern Mediterranean.

The event which is offered with free admission will take place at the Stathakion Cultural Center in Astoria, NY. An RSVP is preferred. To book seats please email cypreco@earthlink.net or call 718-545-1151. For more information visit, www.cyprecoofamerica.com.

The remains of Khirokitia and the archaeological finds from ongoing excavations that stretch back to the mid-1930's and which continue to date have shed a lot of light on the evolution of human society in Cyprus. The featured film also highlights important aspects of the life and traditions of the first inhabitants of Khirokitia. The event will also feature speakers who come from Khirokitia who will share personal stories about the discovery of the settlement and the ongoing excavations at the site.

Organized by CYPRECO of America, Inc., a non-profit Queens-based cultural organization with a vibrant presence spanning over 30 years in New York's cultural scene, this new progam is part of CYPRECO's ongoing commitment of providing unique folk arts programs which promote the rich heritage, history and culture of Cyprus in America.

Description:

Perfectly suited for the entire family, this unique event offered with free admission will feature stage readings in English and in Greek of representative Cypriot folk stories and poems which survived over the centuries by word of mouth and which were collected and published for the first time in Engish translation in the books, "Folk Stories My Grandmother Told Me" and "Cypriot Folk Poems 900-1900AD", by the late Lucy Maroulleti, author, translator and storyteller. Unlike children's fables, these folk stories and poems revive unique aspects of the rural life of the Cypriots in older times about war heroes, love, loss of a loved one among other, while most of them reflect true events.

The event will take place at the Stathakion Cultural Center, 22-51 29th Street, Astoria, NY 11105 which is easily accessible by subway (Astoria N or Q BMT Lines - last stop Ditmars Blvd). All seats at the venue are numbered and an RSVP is preferred. To books seats email cypreco@earthlink.net or call 718-545-1151. For more information please visit, www.cyprecoofamerica.com.
