Plato’s allegory of the cave, the infamous and most famous metaphor of Western philosophy, has lost none of its sharpness and topicality to this day.
This is where the star of the Russian avant-garde, Vladimir Tarnopolski, is setting up his second opera project. It is not the philosophers, but the arts that lead people to truth.
The setting of the initially abstract texts, which are dedicated to art as a medium for the elevation of humanity, is visualized by the Palindrome Dance Company through expressive dance and the play with light and shadow.
