An installation - performance by Eleanna Martinou
Date: July 23, 2016
Βased on Ancient Greek mythology and the story of Deucalion and Pyrrha about the end of the world (rain and water). Deucalion and Pyrrha, while walking on Parnassos, where throwing stones that were born again as new human beings, forming on that way a new society. The circle is the basic shape of the theatre of Delphi, of the earth and of the sky. The circle means eternity, bonding and it is both the beginning (ομφαλός) and the end of things, through rythm. Aristotle had realized what is the true meaning of life's rythm and time. Not functioning as a chronometer but time seems like to be a metronome. And one of the most interesting perceptions of time is the one while falling in love.
