The City and its Labyrinth

Date: 2 Sep 2021

Location: Athens

Country: Greece

Public Event

Alone in an unknown city, a land steeped in legends of the old gods, Little Amal becomes afraid. Which direction should she go in? What if she loses her way forever?

She ties a thread of bright red yarn to a nearby lamp post so that she leaves a trail on her walk through the city. Soon many others join her, all holding their own thread of yarn. The city will be invited to join her, to create a living, collaborative work of public art, an old myth in a new form led by the Kinitiras Dance Company.

The red yarn procession makes its way through the city centre, toward the Gazi Technopolis where Amal comes face to face with a minotaur, inspired by the bull of Picasso’s Guernica and created by master Greek puppeteer Stathis Markopoulos and the UNIMA collective.

Amal’s fear rises and she wishes she could escape, but there is no way. She faces the beast. Now the minotaur is afraid of Amal. Can the two negotiate their fear and befriend each other?
