The Orpheus Variations

Inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in the Underworld, The Orpheus Variations tells the story of Orpheus, a grief-stricken musician, who goes on a journey through the sights and sounds of his memories in search of his vanished wife. The project collides live storytelling, live radio play, and live film vocabularies in a deconstruction of creative process.
