Ancient mysteries and tarantism
A myth has a universal, not an individual, value. A myth is a broken image of the truth, like a rainbow is a reflex of the sunlight which rays are refracted in the cloud. However, it is possible to pick up and combine all pieces of this broken mirror and thus reconstruct it. ORPH is a performance that goes beyond the folkloristic aspect of Italian Tarantella in order to elaborate and go deeply in Orphism and the symbolic representation of the myth of Dionysus.
