KKORE IN SICILY: IN THE CRADLE OF THE MYTH
Agrigento – Valle dei Templi, 21 July
Morgantina (En) – Teatro Greco, 11 August
The Greek Theatre and the archaeological site of Morgantina are dedicated to Demeter and Kore, present with smiling faces in two beautiful acroliths to the nearby Museum of Aidone. Popular local legend says that right on the shore of Lake Pergusa, the ground has opened up and Hades abducted the young Kore while she was picking flowers in the meadowland. There, wheat is called "kore" and women, when were sad or happy, slightly and repeatedly battled the hand in their chest whispering "kore kore kore kore ...". After the exciting evening in Agrigento, in front of the Temple of Juno in the Valley of the Temples, it is precisely in Morgantina that we set up again our show, that – through the contemporary writing of Lina Prosa and the interpretation of Sara with her daughter Giulia – to this myth is based.
