Greeks on tour 2016 /17

  • production

Duda Paiva’s first production for children in coproduction with MAAS theater dans

Choreographer Duda Paiva interprets three Greek myths through dance and puppetry. Magical tales of greed, stupidity and entanglement, with gripping, priceless encounters between the dancers and the life-like puppets.

King is the story of a self-indulgent Greek hero who is punished by the gods with insatiable hunger. Nikè is the goddess of victory. This winged beauty descends into the human realm to award men with glory and fame.
Cyclops is a dull-witted giant who is cunningly and ruthlessly duped by the Odysseus and his companion.

“The most beautiful and touching fragment is the duet between a man and the goddess Nikè.” Theaterkrant about Nikè in the Break a Legend project
