Nina Menkes

A radical re-imagining of the Greek myth, MINOTAUR is set in the contemporary Old City of Jerusalem, with a single man playing the complex figure of Theseus and his nemesis: the Minotaur. The Minotaur symbolizes the violent destruction that terrorizes the area; the heroic journey here is to confront and transform this negative vortex into an ascending, spiritual, non-denominational love, which is, in fact, the deepest inner meaning of the Holy City.
