A sad, mythological love story that puts the strongest winds to test in the way to love, and depicts the ruptures in the love storms, and the pain.

Two voices of Dionysus; Jole Rose and Filiz Kutlar, will interpret the story of Arianna, caressed by the Mediterrenean breeze and touched by love, which turns legend into poetry, and will run faster than the wind on the road to love.

The projections on a beach filled with young heroes...

Two Ariannas, union of dark and light, like the sun and the night...

Slipperiness of time, unstoppable dreams, life that passes in a dream-like ambiguity, and love as the eternal union of life and death.

The legend that slips through the fingers like sand: the hourglass of time cannot stop the dream. And everything flies away, flows like the material of dreams.

This is the story of eternal love where life and death are locked in a close embrace...

Arianna, the princess of Crete, gives a threadball to Theseus, whom she falls in love with at first sight, and helps him escape. The God Dionysus will show another way to Arianna who is abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos to where they escape after she deserts her country and her family. 

Arianna - The Way of Love is staged by one of Italy’s most acclaimed theatre directors, Memè Perlini. After its premiere at the 17th International İstanbul Theatre Festival, the play will be performed in Rome and at Le Cinque Terre.
