About

Athens is going through a deep political and spiritual crisis, a crisis of institutions and values. In the arid and ominous reality of the city, Dionysus, father and initiator of the theater, begins the journey to the Underworld to bring back the seed of rebirth, poetry, in order to save the collapsing world. Accompanied by Xanthias and the noise of frogs, through successive comical and paradoxical encounters he reaches Hades to resurrect the Poet.


The one who can face the coming disaster.

From the cracks of the play's senseless comedy, the weaknesses of the living and the dead emerge and the foul waters of reality are shaken. With a vision of the great idea of ​​saving the world, the descent of Dionysus into Hades becomes at the same time a descent into the mechanism of the theater itself. Following in the footsteps of Dionysus, the show asks to reach the core of theatrical creation with the wonderful "Aristophanic expressionism" as a guide.
