“The body houses Dionysos. It is the god who has been buried and forgotten not only by the Thebans, but by modern man as well. Terzopoulos wants to re-awaken the narcotized god and free his suppressed erotic creative life energy. But not only erotic. Freud had understood Dionysos well: he is the god of the orgy of life but he is, also, the god of the dark forces of death, Eros and Thanatos at once.”
(from the preface by Konstantinos Arvanitakis)
