2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture presents Mystery 128 CROWS on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 July, at the Leonidas Kanellopoulos Cultural Centre. A special performance of physical theatre and live music by Holektiv, the famous company from the Czech Republic.

In Greek mythology, crows are a symbol of the goddess Athena and the god Apollo. According to the English poet, novelist and translator Robert Graves, Athena is the only Triple Goddess representing a maiden, a nymph, and a crone. The relationship between crows and humans has always been unique.

Mystery 128 CROWS is a work about those special bearers of our dreams and secrets. These birds live alongside us humans in the same way they occupy their own habitats, far removed from people. Given their colour, hunched posture, and fondness for carcasses, they came to be seen as symbols of death. Crows, however, also symbolise birth and, in particular, the perpetual female cycle of life.

Mystery 128 CROWS is a performance for women and for anyone who feels like a woman.

A few words about the Holektiv company

The Holektiv company was founded in 2015 in Prague by Andrea Vykysalá-Benková, Eva Stará and Karolína Křížková. Thanks to this special encounter, an all-female ensemble was born on the Czech cultural scene, playfully combining different genres of theatre, acrobatics and dance. Over the last eight years, collaborating with artists from different disciplines, they have managed to create a unique style, performing on the Czech and international scene. Apart from choreographic and theatrical works, they are also actively involved in the pedagogy of dance and contemporary circus.
