Mystical imagery and dark atmosphere. Greek tradition is deconstructed and linked with the present, as the legendary Dance of Zalongos inspires an original choreography. Danae and Dionysios, carry the emotionally charged "last dance" from the edge of the cliff onto the stage, conveying the movement towards the brink of the abyss. Bodies turn into earth, nourishing in turn what once nourished them. From the ground to the sky; from the roots to the blooming flowers; from the end to the beginning; from the beginning to the end: the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth. A performance that vividly brings to life the creatures of the natural world.
