The authoress' text is an extended review of the performance 'Hode Galatan', which was produced in co-operation with the Welsh company 'Earthfall Dance'. The performance was the result of putting together modern, urban form of choreography represented by the Welsh directors Jim Ennis and Jessica Cohen and interpretations of ancient Greek music performed by the 'Ancient Orchestra' run by the Polish director of the piece - Tomasz Rodowicz. The authoress notices in the piece the question about the form of art related to an artist's desire of experiencing the sacred. At the same time there is a search for authenticity and a new language of expression reaching to the Greek roots of theatre and exploring the principle of chorea - the tri-unity of poetry, music and dance.
