INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF PERFORMANCE ARTS AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN FAMAGUSTA

THE LOOP-SCHOOL OF DANCE AND DRAMA

The city has dominant urban elements such as the city walls, the monuments and the main pedestrian axis which leads people from main squares to city gates. In the project, the idea is to continuation of these patterns into the project area and creating secondary pedestrian axis. Also, the concept of performance is reinterpreted within the historic tissue of the city. An architectural promenade is proposed in order to observe the site and the art&performance. The promenade has become a solution to the deficiency of the relation between walled city and the outer city in terms of physical and visual connection. With creating different vista points, the idea of site-specific performance is enhanced in relation with the historical context (theatrical promenade).
