Dear Friends,

The Puppetry Arts Center, Atlanta , in collaboration with the Honorary Consulate of Cyprus in Georgia and Southeast United States, is unveiling to the public its first museum display of shadow puppets from Cyprus on June 10, 2017.

To showcase this addition to its puppet collection and celebrate the new international collaboration, the Center has invited the Consulate to hold a cultural/educational event, bringing in members of the Cypriot, Greek, and Greater Atlanta community to view the puppets.

As part of this event, the Consulate and Mr. Vincent Anthony, Director, Puppetry Arts Center, invite you to attend the Shadow Theater presentation “Alexander the Great and the Cursed Snake,” a show performed with great success at the Kennedy Center and other venues in Washington, D.C., in 2011, by Charalambos Charalambous, a high school teacher and skilled puppeteer from Cyprus.

Mr. Charalambous and his daughter and co-worker Elena, will be in Atlanta to conduct two live Shadow Theater performances (1:00 PM and 3:00 PM) at the Puppetry Arts Center on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The performances, intended for children and families, will be in English and will be accompanied by a workshop and reception.

Please mark your calendars. More information will be sent to you as we finalize preparations. Many thanks for your support as we bring our Cypriot Greek heritage to the greater Atlanta cultural community.

Please see this flyer for additional information and schedule.

Polyxeni Potter
Honorary Consul
