Orpheus

By: Moved by the Motion
 

With a single look back, Orpheus banishes his beloved Eurydice irretrievably to the underworld and casts himself into deep mourning. The story of the mythical singer meets Moved by the Motion’s long-standing exploration of social visibility. Inspired by countless interpretations of the myth, artist Wu Tsang and her team turn Orpheus into a tragedy of the gaze and a story about overcoming death and the power of love.
