In the old days, the myths were the stories we used to explain ourselves […] we’re the same beings that began, still living in all of our fury and foulness and friction, everyday odysseys, dreams and decisions . . .
DAPHNE comes from the myth. This is the story of a nymph to whom the father says that she cannot live the life she wants because "she is too beautiful/nice" and to whom a man asks to give in because "he follows her because of love".
Daphne comes from the sense of fragility that resides in each of us. And from the search for ourselves.
Daphne speaks for Ifigenia, for Cassandra, for Antigone. She speaks for anyone looking for the strength to decide for themselves who to be: she is a woman who tries to leave a man because maybe she deserves "something more", she is a girl who fights because there are still those who have not understood that she deserves to study, she is a teenager running away from his parents because he wants to live another life, his life.
She says that it is right to dream and fight. She says about “all we really need; in a place to belong. And how all we really want; is to know what’s right, from what’s wrong. And how we all need to struggle to find for ourselves which side we are on.”
The first step comes from us, the biggest struggle is in the heart that tries to find the way to say "Enough, because I have to, I have to be me". Even if it means dying in one form and being reborn in another one.
The performance is designed to be set in non-theatrical spaces. It is performed live by the artistic duo ETU in a twine of sound, singing and word.
The music, voice and live modulation performed with the loop station create a story that oscillates between lucidity and sensation. The voice of Daphne thus becomes all the voices: of a little girl, a father, a woman. And all these voices join in a sound forest of trills, cries, songs and groans to narrate the debate of the soul.
