\#HELD(IN)

Who reigns on Olympus? Is it the supreme Zeus? His wife Hera? Or, most brilliant of all, Pallas Athene?

 

And what do these kings and queens of the mountain do with all those heroes? Who do nothing but (try to) seduce woman and prove their manhood. Ancient heroes that did anything in their quest for power and prestige.

 

Nothing really hanged since then, or has it? We want to see what a bunch of millennials think of these Ancient Greek gods. What happens when they handle these famous stories together with a DJ? Bitter battles are fought, sultry loves blossom, pride is punished, and personal feuds are settled.

 

#HELD(IN) is a storytelling performance that is full of beats and energy. Greek myths are ruthlessly brought into the present, never to disappear again from the spectator's mind.
