A mythological creature Trivia – known as Hekate in the ancient Greek mythology and as Heqet in ancient Egypt – is being portrayed through musical and dance theater. As is normal for cult cultures, the story tells of victimization, murder, fatally important decisions, escape, transformation, freedom.
Gruppe Moment will contribute something new to your perception of that 4000-old story, the way different cultural epochs changed it for humanity. The character that is being portrayed unites conflicting opposites. Improvisation and composition/choreography, architecture and wilderness, emotional turmoil and control, participation and ostracism, hierarchy and the end thereof.
