About the event

We  mused for ages about the infinity of our souls, which leave our bodies after death as a temporary shell and continue to wander,  reincarnates or in a heaven enjoys the eternal life. Recently  a new belief has been added: through artificial intelligence   we could upload our minds, as it were. Beliefs that are often based on the contradiction between the deceptive  physical world and a higher eternal reality in which we   rest._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb193b -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Eurydice, a descent into infinity is a Virtual Reality opera  in which you, as a spectator, immerse yourself in an immersive experience.  A hypnotic and individual journey, inspired by the ancient myth  of Orpheus and Eurydice. A battle between dust and eternity, in which  time fades and the laws of space crumble. 'Where do you belong  ? Between wandering, disembodied souls or with your feet in the  clay?'  _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d-5cdecc583113605_
