Within the 4th year anniversary celebrations of cooperation, the road known as the Ledra Palace crossing line will be very happy, colourful and vibrant place for one hour! Come and experience this street metamorphosis during which the main actor will be simply the road itself.

In the so-called Green Line Love Park, amateur and professional participants from the Theatrical Thursday workshops at the Home of Cooperation will give an extraordinary taste to the street under the guidance of their instructor and renowned actor Marios Ioannou. They will mingle with people and give a taste of love and cooperation through their performances -so called tableaux vivants (living pictures). 

Green Line Love Park will remind that when there is good intention, a ground for balloons, magical balls, painters, eco system guides, beekeepers, singers, talking status, flower sellers, jugglers, free huggers, Rumpelstiltskins can flourish as well as many more –for a possibility of unity and celebration.
The performers from across the dividing line will be more than happy to convince you for this possibility...
