If you’re temped to press play on what may possibly be your hundredth Netflix episode (just like rest of us!), you may want to hold back and hit the pause button for just a moment. And if you’re an avid theatre lover or general culture vulture, you may even want to stop streaming your favourite show for a few days as Cyprus Home Theatre brings the excitement of the best of the island’s theatre straight into your living rooms!
A recent initiative by Black Lemon TV and Avant Garde Cyprus, the platform is very easy to use – just click on the site here and scroll through a comprehensive showcase of theatre productions. The initiative is one that kicked off on occasion of International Theatre Day on March 27th, with the aim of hosting theatre productions from the island’s greatest creators all in one place.
More of a film buff than a theatre aficionado? Black Lemon TV also hosts some fantastic Cyprus films on the site’s Films From Cyprus section. Super easy to access, there are some award-winners to enjoy, plenty of shorts and a good bit of alternative on-screen action to indulge creative minds. The comprehensive showcase of Cypriot films was created during the COVID-19 outbreak, after Cyprus was officially placed on lockdown.
