Published 08/06/2015

La Fura dels Baus are traveling to Italy to Napoli Teatro Festival 2015 with Aphrodite and the judgment of Paris. It will be on the 13th June, at 22h30, at the Mostra d’Oltramare in Napoli.

The show, directed by Pera Tantiñá will be an air show, with music and video that will own all magic. Also, ‘Aphrodite and the judgment of Paris’ will have local participants (previously selected through a casting). The installation attaches great importance to the human factor, necessary to make this impressive show of 1 hour long.

The show will feature broadcasts on social networks through specific hashtag #AfroditaNapoli. There will be online interviews with participants, tests and other interesting information that will help bring the public, both Italian and international, to this show.

This outdoor installation tells the dispute between Athena, Hera and Aphrodite for possessing the apple “for the fairest”. The temperate Paris has to act as a judge and goddesses will tempt him by offering various gifts in return for his choice. Paris selects Aphrodite who will give him something that unable to refuse: the beautiful Helen, the precursor of the future Trojan War.
