Éxodus: the first day

Inspired by Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone by Sophocles.

Exodus: the First Day is inspired by Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone by Sophocles.

The work is structured into danced episodes and stasima (choral interventions), that tell the story of Oedipus and Antigone’s journey to the forest of Colonus, Oedipus’ death and Antigone’s return to the city of Tebas.

The dance is inspired by ancient Greek iconography, the music is original, performed on stage by a soprano, woodwinds and percussion, part of musical recreations from this era.

This work is supported by Canal Dance Center, and was nominated for the Premios Max and Andaluz Theater Award (2014) for Best Dance Performance and best female dancer (Luz Arcas). It is part of the AECID catalogue (2015).

The world premiere of Exodus: First Day was September 2013 at the Roman Theater of Baelo Claudia (Bologna).
