Darkness on earth is even thicker than the darkness of the underworld. Orpheus could not bring his wife back from the land of the dead. But did he truly return to the land of the living with nothing? Is it possible to dance to express the memory, the past, and the materiality of flesh? Is it possible to dance to express what creates the present moment? This piece is inspired by the Greek myth of Orpheus’ return from the underworld and Kantor’s theory of theater.
