Between the Seas Showcases Mediterranean Culture

Between the Seas is the first festival in New York to concentrate on contemporary Mediterranean performing artists, founded in 2010 by theatre artist and scholar Aktina Stathaki. The festival runs for a week every summer, and it’s considered one of the most unique platforms for high quality work from artists all around the Mediterranean. New York now has the ability to assist performers from Egypt, Israel, Greece, Lebanon, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Canada, Morocco and the US.

As Between the Seas rapidly grows, it is seeking to expand into different activities such as play productions, residencies to encourage the translation of plays from the Mediterranean, and new partnerships. This summer a list of new, provoking and talented artists are going to perform at The Wild Project from July 21, to July 27.

The calendar and more information on the artists can be found on the Between the Seas official website. If you are up for a stimulating, artistic and original experience get your ticket, and enjoy the Mediterranean performances.
