The artist Lenia Georgiou leaded Fief, a group performance in the only place where Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots can meet, see each other, talk to each other, perform together.

Lenia invited 15 people from the north and 15 people from the south side of the divide to meet for the first time in Yiğitler Burcu Park and in Markou Drakou Street pavement respectively. Having the metal fence separating them, the participants were asked to move in the designated area and freely place themselves in the space. 5 other people from their group will hinder them by moving them elsewhere. This action was performed simultaneously on both sides.

It was part of the Visual Voices Artistic residency programme 2020.
