Youth Alert participants during the premiere performance

Over 400 persons attended the theatrical performance ‘XX/XY: Gender Revelations’ that was presented at the Open Theatre in Nicosia on the 5th, 6th and 9th of May 2010!

The play and the performances are results of the project ‘Youth Alert: Theatre for the Promotion of Gender Equality Awareness among Young People’ coordinated by the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies [MIGS] in partnership with Rooftop Theatre Cyprus and the Cyprus Family Planning Association.

Inspired by Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues, the play aimed to bring to the surface issues that are considered taboo in Cypriot society in relation to gender identities, sexual orientation, and sexuality as well as to raise awareness on gender-based violence.

MIGS would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the performances as well as all the enthusiastic and dedicated people that worked together to make this project and the final performances such a success.  Special thanks to all our wonderful participants who volunteered their time and to our partner organizations.

The project Youth Alert was funded by EEA Grants, Norway Grants and the Republic of Cyprus.
