Description (in English): 

Eurydice, een afdaling in oneindigheid is a Virtual Reality opera inspired by the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The audience makes a solitary journey to an in-between space, between matter and eternity, in which time fades and the laws of space become obsolete. “Where do you belong? Between wandering souls or with both feet on the solid ground?”
For centuries we have mused on the infinity of our soul, which after death leaves our body behind as a temporary shell and itself resumes to wander—whether by reincarnating, ascending to a heaven or being uploaded to the cloud. These are all desires based on the contradiction between the deceptive material world and a higher eternal reality in which we find our peace.
Eurydice’s hypnotic singing draws you deeper and deeper into a labyrinth of corridors, ruins and balustrades, beyond which dizzying depths and vistas open up. Your curiosity is the best compass in this fascinating in-between space full of poetry and enchanting music.
