Affiliation 1: Daedalus and Icarus

1990-1991

Affiliation 1 is the choreographer’s interpretation of the poem Daedalus by Angelos Sikeliano.

Loosely based on the myth of Daedalus and Icarus, the piece is a metaphor for the relationship between two men, specifically a father and son. The story centres on issues of power and trust, unmet expectations, disappointments, conflicts, the loss of trust and the attempts to regain and rebuild trust and finally, reconciliation and resolution.
