The Bacchae

Body Without Body

Directed By Rinio Kyriazi

Premiere: August 2020

4th Festival of Ancient Drama,

Festival of Philippi

Character: Agave

The thread of the Bacchi myth - five actors, four axis’, three languages, one place, narratives of one god, two angels, three women, four points of the horizon. They sing God in contradictions. They delete Penthea's course from unholy to sanctity, from delusion to knowledge, from pride to sorrow. They speak about Agave who, from ecstasy to madness, claiming the power of the female goddess is overwhelmed. The wildlife that is pushing. They mourn the man who is removed, the body that is distracted. The remains of body, the body without body. They mourn for our little pieces. A distance acrobation, a circular need, a struggle for the whole.
