Prometheus

Premiered on Decembre 19th, 2020.
Currently on tour.

The myth tells that Prometheus is punished by Zeus for giving fire to humans, thus freeing them from their animality. An eagle will eternally devour Prometheus’ liver for having disobeyed the boss of Olympus. Although we could say instead that an eagle will eternally devour Prometheus’ liver for having given the human race a second chance with an act of solidarity. Is Prometheus a saboteur who deserves his punishment or someone who puts himself in danger in the first person to rebel against despotic powers pursuing a collective good? How is the original myth related to the reinterpretation made by Mary Shelley through her Dr Frankenstein? Puting aside an opinion on Julian Assange, could he be a modern-day Prometheus? Greek myths, like all myths, are there so that through them we can ask ourselves about human nature, not necessarily to find unambiguous answers. Key questions of the show: Should we always respect rules? What if a rule is unfair? Who decides what is or isn’t unfair? Should someone who breaks a rule be punished? What if we break the rule with a fair purpose? What if we didn’t know that rule existed? Who are the Prometheus of our time? And so on, and so on. It is fascinating to see children’s minds sparkling question after question.
