Description

"A Mediterranean opera? is how Ali and Hèdi Thabet think of their latest production. Inspired by Greek mythology and Greek music, the Belgian-Tunisian brothers also draw on their own dual heritage from Europe and the East to tell a poetic story of love, humanity and exile. All is filtered through the myth of Narcissus, symbol of beauty and banishment who drowned in his own reflection and a recurrent theme in the brothers' work.

Ali and Hèdi Thabet present their multi-disciplinary theatrical spectacle UWRUBBA with the help of six dancers, seven classical and traditional musicians, a poet and a mezzo soprano to perform Vivaldi arias as well as medieval polyphonic pieces. A large mirror on stage recalls the idea of the outcast Narcissus's reflection while actually reflecting another group of exiles, in extracts from Jean-Daniel Pollet's documentary, The Order, about the leper colony of Spinalonga.
