Stories are spun and woven.
Rumours are woven around the world like a net and change their appearance like clouds in the wind. Whether the truth is always taken so seriously is doubtful. For Eris, the goddess of discord, envy and resentment, is everywhere. She twists words, rushes, hisses, mumbles, whispers, lets words fall like rotten leaves into people's heads, where they rot and poison.
A long time ago there lived a weaver from a humble home called Arachne who, through diligence and love for her profession, was able to weave so beautifully that even Athena, the goddess of craftsmanship and weaving, became envious. She demanded gratitude and worship from Arachne. But Arachne refused.
An argument broke out and a weaving competition began. But what chance did the mortals have against the divines, the little ones against the great ones?
Only that they too become immortal.
Because their story is told.
A theatre event with puppets, visual media and music for people aged 10 and over, based on writings by Homer, Hesiod, Ovid and others.
