Ariadne's thread #1

A long and multifaceted artistic research journey that has resulted in three site-specific creations on the theme of the classical myth of Theseus, Ariadne and the Minotaur, and which forms the basis of study for the creation of the show The Minotaur. Journey of a Hero.

Ariadne's thread is the handhold that has allowed one to delve into the labyrinth of research and creative genesis, taking the luxury of getting lost while holding firm to the aesthetic and thematic principles of departure.

Ariadne's Thread #1. A performance with a strong visual and aural impact involving the 13 participants in the 10-day performance investigation workshop within the spaces of I Macelli Certaldo (FI). The emotional tale of Theseus and Ariadne's encounter and the last moments of the Minotaur forced into a ritual animated by anonymous butchers in absolute synchrony and perfect synergy with the host space: the former slaughterhouse.
