An evening dedicated to
contemporary silent moving image
and experimental sound

Within the framework of the
9th X-Dream Festival

- Free admission

Following the great success of Moving Silence in Cyprus for the past six years at ARTos Foundation, Moving Silence takes place for the seventh consecutive year in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Cyprus and with the support of the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture, within the framework of the 9th X-Dream Festival. On Thursday, 7 December 2017 at 19:30 at ARTos Foundation, musicians and composers will meet to perform live soundtracks for video and film works without sound by contemporary creators of their choice.  The audience will have a unique experience where the musicians-composers perform live their music while the films/videos that have inspired them are simultaneously screened.
