“She finally speaks. Through the arts and the ages, the inheritance of Orpheus and his mesmerizing voice has always overshadowed the other voice of the couple. But Elfiede Jelinek's Eurydice won't obediently be led.”
The figure of Orpheus appears throughout this programme, built around literary and dramatic texts. With different actors lending them their voices and bodies, the texts we have chosen rescue people, characters, events, and memories from oblivion. And they anchor us in history. We call on the ancient great Ovid and Aristophanes, creating a dialogue between their work and that of modern writers like Elfriede Jelinek and Asli Erdogan. Women who chose to speak against the darkness and to make us hear “the silent screams of the victims,” regardless of country or time.
