    John Kelly: Find My Way Home

    Kelly’s dance theatre work Find My Way Home is based on the ancient Greek Myth of Orpheus & Eurydice. The production moves the myth from antiquity to the Great Depression era, with Orpheus (the great musician of antiquity) recast as a famous radio crooner, who makes a pact with the gods so that he can venture into the Underworld to bring his Eurydice back to life.

    Kelly’s dance theatre work Find My Way Home is based on the ancient Greek Myth of Orpheus & Eurydice. The production moves the myth from antiquity to the Great Depression era, with Orpheus (the great musician of antiquity) recast as a famous radio crooner, who makes a pact with the gods so that he can venture into the Underworld to bring his Eurydice back to life. Opera, period music, dance (from the 1920s & 30s), and cinematic acting styles collide and unfold. The work includes scenes and arias from Gluck’s Baroque opera Orfeo Ed Eurydice, (originally written for male castrato, and sung in Kelly’s countertenor voice), together with projected film sequences, extravagant costume and set design, and a company of seven dancers.
