Prometheus. Beginnings. is a devised dance theatre work, conceived by Tzveta Kassabova with the cast. The piece takes inspiration and ideas from plays written by the Berlin-based playwright Kevin Rittberger. The piece creates the environment in which some of the pressing questions of our time float in, come to focus, and interact with each other. The piece is an exploration of an entanglement of movement, spoken word, improvisational music score by Steve Hilmy and the evocative set of the production. The piece explores the challenges of immigration, our current climate crisis, and the role of technology in our lives. We have an amazing cast – Antonio Disla, Jason Cianciulli, Edie Crowley, Molly Felsher, Victoria Vourkoutiotis, Lenin Izquierdo, and Rohan Maletira.

The length of the work is approximately one hour.

Prometheus. Beginnings. was originally created in the context of the conference “Diffractive World-Making – Theatre and Science Beyond the Capitalocene” and an initial version was premiered at the University of Indiana. The piece was realized with the help of SMTD RCI grant, funds from SMTD Global Engagement, and UMOR and performed in Ann Arbor in March 2023. The piece will be performed at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival in June 2024.
