PERFORMANCE : The myth of Persephone | Eleana Dimopoulou | GR

PERFORMANCE : The myth of Persephone | Eleana Dimopoulou | GR

Persephone’s Fall is the outcome of a practice-based study, that researches the contemporary

form of mythical narration, as shaped by the digital tools available to modern day’s creators-
narrators.

The scenic space of this audiovisual dance performance is intangible, as it’s being realized and
visualized solely through the art of Projection Mapping.
This digital tool instigates the interaction between space, body and light in order to successfully
convey the Jungian archetypal Mother-Daughter dipole and the never-ending cycle of Life,
Death and Rebirth as signified in the Homeric Hymn “To Demeter”.
“Persephone’s Fall” thus functions, as a digital reflection of the primitive rituals of the
Eleusinian Mysteries, always keeping in focus the myth of Persephone, all the while placing
KORE herself at the center of the narration.
