Golden Loom and Ivory Scallop, 2010

1 female - 1 male musician

Maria Papalexi

A young mother that tries to put her baby to sleep tells tales to it... stories that may – or may not – be true: she talks about a beautiful and cute girl, visited the three Fates on the third night after her birth. The Fates endowed the girl with a talent in the art of loom and predicted that when she will marry a rich young man who will love and follow her to places unknown. However, shortly after their marriage, the man will lose all his fortune...

Taking elements from ancient myths, folk tales, songs, lullabies and game-songs, the play “weaves” the life story of Rinio, a young weaver whose fantasy and skill is not limited to her textiles, but is also evident in the fairy tales she tells to her daughter.
