Cyprus : Tiresias

An exploration of the complex nature of the mythical character of Tiresias through information we already know about him and hypothetical actions that might take place in a closed room. The character compromises with his blindness and his sexuality and co-exists with a shadow, and an empty chair.

A meditation in the form of dance about antiquity, modernity and the immanent ambiguity of existence. The piece grows as a guide through a process that starts from the animal and the irrational, and later becomes human, where the past and the future meet in a recollection of our own actual dimension.
