 Jori Hermsen Productions in collaboration with Naturally Uitermeer

“We may not be handsome, but we are braver than any other animal.

No god strong enough to live with his future forever.  No man brave enough to look his past in the eye."

(from the Circe myth)

Debauchery, lust and love, murder and manslaughter, triumphs and tragedies; the Greek myth are wilder and more ferocious than life itself.


Directed by Jessica Zeylmaker, MYTHE is an inspiring theatrical route that takes you via the River Styx, to the remote  island of Aeaea, on  the divine Mount Olympus, through the whispering woods of King Midas, through the caverns of Hades, to the summer abode of the Greek gods  Pelion leads. Decor is the beautiful site of Fort Uitermeer in Weesp. Melissa Knollenburg has created five new myths especially for Jori Hermsen Productions; Circe, Eros, Midas, Orpheus and Paris.
