In Greek mythology, Orpheus was the first musician and father of all song. His music soothed the beasts and made the stones dance. When his beloved wife, Eurydice, died an unfortunate death, he ventured into the underworld crossing the river of vows and memory in order to bring her back. His gentle notes soften the hearts of demons and hell’s master, who agreed to release Eurydice on the strict term that Orpheus will not look back at her on their way to the surface. He looked back.
Clipa's Orpheus is a regular man, living in an ordinary house, with his lovely wife. After her sudden death, Orpheus sinks into a journey of sadness and grief. The underworld and its inhabitants come to life in everyday objects and furniture. Everything Orpheus touches becomes music, which turns the myth into reality and his tragic journey comes to an end without him ever leaving his flat.
