“Eurydice, the new spouse, perished as she was injured at the heel, by the tooth of a snake. When Orpheus had grieved for her enough, at the surface of the earth, he dared to descend through the gates of Hell to the kingdom of shadows…”
A musician and a pupeteer dive into the myth. They relate this moment, where everything topples over, where light comedy becomes dramatic and then tragic. The first person manoeuvres the sound machines while the second manipulates the lamps, objects and puppets. Orpheus Manipulations, is an underworld crossing, a roller coaster of astonishing sounds. The shadow theatre, the video, the music and the puppet attract Orpheus’ attention, and relate love and the Absolute.
