Premiere - October 2017, DNK, Sofia

"Roadtrip to Hell" is a theater oratorio loosely based on Dante's Inferno and Monteverdi's Orfeo.
"Roadtrip to Hell" articulates an experimental hypothesis about a form of radical existence, hypothesis about life possessed by desire that knows no end.
For desire that knows no limit, Hell is not inevitable end but necessary condition.

The roadtrip to hell is a journey to oneself. Hell is not ahead of us. Hell has already happened. Hell is here and now.
"Where there is no desire, there is no hell. Where there is no hell, there is no desire."
