Anomalia, SAPTA Theater


The SAPTA Theater presents the Anomalia, a Greek myth which wanders in space. Anomalia fuses Greek mythology with Science Fiction in an exploration of the early life of Zeus – the time before he became the warrior who fought against the Titans or the ‘father of gods and men,’ as described by the poets of ancient times.

The story takes place on the young gaseous planet EA. EA is home to the Süm, an invertebrate species with tentacles and boneless trunks that they use for echolocation. Cronos and Rhea are the last remaining two of their kind. Violently jealous of his power, Cronos devours his descendants in their embryonic state. One day Rhea catches Cronos feeding on his eggs and hides one. It is out of this egg that the mutated Süm Anomalia (Zeus) hatches. As he grows up, aided by the nymphs Maia and Ida, Anomalia learns about love, betrayal, aggression and his true self. But no Greek hero can escape his destiny and Anomalia grows up determined to change the course of the planet…

In order to achieve a cohesion of Scince-fiction and Greek mythology on stage, surreal masks and puppets as well outer space scenography are applied. Working with black light creates a mystical illusionary. The performance is a movement based show without text, supported by strong sound design and impressive visual elements. (Source
