Prometheus has always been viewed as a symbol of rebellion. Unable to contain his emotions and accept canons or conventions, he is a hero who challenges constituted authority and makes this his status in life. By bestowing fire on humankind, he became the archetype of technological and scientific knowledge, unconstrained by superstition and ignorance. The show’s young performers let Aeschylus’ words flow through their bodies, using physical action that leads to dance and sounds that become songs.

from Aeschylus / direction Gabriele Vacis
