Aphrodite's Refugees

One of the more interesting shows I've seen at the Fringe. It follows four refugees during the Cypriot civil war, pitting Greek against Turkish residents of the island. Some of it is heartbreaking. An artist paints flowing scenes in watercolor to illustrate the story. At times the actress, Monica Dionysiou, retreats to a corner. There she describes a card game between Aphrodite, the Greek god of love, and Ares, the god of war. Everybody cheats and the outcome trickles down to the mortals below.
