Eurydice: An Arrival

Eurydice: An Arrival

conceived of and directed by Camille Cettina
“…a stunning synthesis of full body mask, cabaret characters and chorus in a script created from multiple sources.  [Camille] confirmed not only her abilities as an actress of unusual emotional intensity, but also as a director, stage designer and dramaturge.”

Amy Russell, Chair of MFA, Naropa University


A Wedding

People were flying through the air, the orchestra, the loudspeakers, everything fell; three floors of the building simply gave way and collapsed into rubble.

We begin at an interrupted moment

a crash

an explosion

cracking and splintering

terror and trembling

and falling

falling

falling

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)

blue hydrangeas

champagne flutes

bones

eyes

lips

People were flying through the air, the orchestra, the loudspeakers, everything fell

rescue workers had to remove the rubble, brick by brick, block by block, piece of concrete by piece of concrete, looking for survivors.

It was a big wedding. 650 guests.

All wearing their best.

Her bridesmaids wore a pale blue.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

We begin with Eurydice’s arrival in the underworld.

a poetic synthesis of sound, found and original text, movement and sculpture.
