A truly timeless love story – the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice never ceases to inspire. As interpreted by the contemporary playwright Sarah Ruhl, the story focuses on Eurydice. In the underworld, she not only loses but finds her freedom, language, and identity anew. Eurydice's search for independence and self-determination allows the creators of the production to engage the audience with new forms of expression. Poet Jānis Elsbergs has not only translated but also masterfully adapted the dramatic text, and the creative team has found the perfect choreographic score rooted in the aesthetic principles of physical theater. This unique combination of artistic means of expression has resulted in a captivating work that will lure you in, enchant you, and won't let you go long after the experience – not unlike love itself.
