Plato’s Cave is a six-day mystery play for eight protagonists, three gods and a choir. It is the second part of the platonic magnum opus Mysteries of Love. Plato’s Cave premiered in the Dome of Visions in Copenhagen in February 2016.
The play consists of four acts, three of which are personal encounters with gods.
Act I Shadows of Afrodite
in which the protagonist makes a choice
Act II Shadows of Dionysos
in which the protagonist builds a gateway
Act III Shadows of Apollon
in which the protagonist practices becoming real
Act IV The Cave
in which the protagonists come together and liberate their true selves
Aphrodite, Apollon and Dionysos guided the protagonists towards mysteries of love. The eight protagonists are members of the audience committed to the whole process. The choir – rest of the audience – could enter the Dome to follow the journey of the protagonists at any point during the first five days, during which the first three acts took place. The fourth act, on the sixth day, was open only for the protagonists.
