With the performance Mount Olympus, Jan Fabre goes beyond theater and dance. During this 24-hour performance, actors, operators, playwrights and the audience sleep, dream and awaken on the set. Mount Olympus is no less than an exceptional show combining mythical rites, captivating music and exhilarating dances!


24 hours is everything. It is the time for working, eating, sleeping and relaxing; it is the time to make love, argue, discuss, seduce, fulfil one’s obligations, to care, to hate and to believe… all the actions that people carry out each day. There is no present in this project; it is a maze of lost time, frozen time, melting time.

The stage acts like the distorting mirror of humanity’s darkest side. Before Western psychoanalysis took hold of it, authentic tragedy belonged to gods and Greek heroes like Antigone, Prometheus, Oedipus and Electra. This theater requires the most absolute transgression of moral and social norms and does not restrict itself to any standards. The moment of recognition never comes: this Greek mythological world is dominated by darkness and the incomprehensible.

In this performance, catharsis cannot be felt without strong images, beauty, violence and the audience’s courage to face it.
