Elinor Randle, Yorgos Karamalegos

A constantly fascinating and very physical duo of dancers brings to life the myth of Orpheus, beautifully highlighting the dancers’ bodies.

Devastated by the death of his beloved Eurydice, the poet Orpheus descends into the underworld in search of his lost love. Having overcome obstacles and vanquished Cerberus, he convinces the King to allow him to take his beloved back to the world of the living, on condition that he does not turn around before leaving the kingdom of the dead. Alas, he forgets his promise.


Compagnie Momentum and Tanya Khabarova of Compagnie Derevo invite spectators on an enchanting journey, following in the steps of Orpheus: the first man, love, death, the shades of Hades, self-discovery and a spiritual quest.
