living museums project
site specific events

EUC will organise informal acoustic interventions / concerts inside museum spaces in Cyprus, aiming to capture the way in which visitors can choose to experience collections: people can spend time on the pieces in which they are more interested as they move and explore various simultaneous performances taking place in different rooms. The action creates a counterpoint between heritage and modernity, between artefacts and new music, between what one can see and what one can hear.
