A peaceful place for reflection on the in-between space of the Buffer Zone, and a place where the mirrors reflect not the face of the one who gazes but the face of the ‘other’ who is gazing away. Though you have your back turned on them, you see the face of the other… The Mirror Space is a space for reflecting on the known and unknown, and for dreaming new connections and healing stories.

About The Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival

The Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival showcases new and experimental work by Cyprus-based and international artists, challenges physical and artistic barriers, and creates opportunities for artists to meet and exchange ideas. It questions preconceived ideas of the performing arts, the relationship between artists and audience and aspires to shine a new light on arts and society.

The Festival’s programme offers artists a platform to develop and showcase their work, and is organized in a way that artists can meet and interact both amongst themselves and with the audiences in a true celebratory spirit of multiculturalism and peaceful coexistence. Taking place in a divided country, the Buffer Fringe is aware of the multiplicity of narratives it is surrounded by, thus challenging the artists to partake in the unearthing of those stories, through their own unique perspective, their methodologies and approaches. The Festival is one-of-a-kind in Cyprus and the world.
