Contemporary Dance: 'Orpheus & Eurydice', Mupa, 27 June
Enrico Morelli's choreography of the anguished and tragic story of the love between Orpheus and Eurydice makes tangible the passion that the two lovers are forced to restrain, by the will of the gods, at the moment they meet in the underworld.

The work is an interesting example of the harmonic co-existence of modernity and classicism, as well as of realism and idealism.

Through his recollections, the protagonist is led from the earthly world to the afterlife by the incomprehensibility of his desires and emotions.

The underworld is the nadir of the soul, the place where the characters confront their own demons.

The bodies of the dancers speak an anthropological and introspective language and translates the tragedy of the myth into a metaphor for mourning, with the dancing thus taking the protagonist on a psychoanalytical journey to conquer the pain of unbearable loss. 

Date and time: Wednesday, 27 June, 7 pm

Ticket prices: HUF 2200 - 4900

1095 Budapest, Komor Marcell u. 1.

    The Clown's life is coming to an end. He is about to enter the unknown, but before the 'final curtain call' he needs to leave his collar behind, taking the last steps only with the nakedness of his soul. In this production, the disguise is removed both literally and figuratively, as the performers invite the audience on an unusual inner journey into imaginary realms, where the layers covering and protecting reality disappear.
