Breathless Moment is a music drama puzzle piece. Collect the puzzles to move forward – using headphones is strongly recommended. Enjoy!
Breathless Moment is based on the antique story about Iphis and Anaxarete as told in Ovid’s Metamorphoses (Bk. XIV, 698-771): The cold hearted princess Anaxarete ignores the wooing and persistent declarations of love from the young man Iphis. Finally, he gives up and hangs himself broken hearted. Anaxarete is punished by the Gods and ‘the stone that had long existed in her heart possessed her body’ – she is turned into stone.
Breathless Moment is created by the Danish artist duo Klejs & Rønsholdt and released in a collaboration between Danish National Vocal Ensemble, TEKNE, Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017, CAVI/Aarhus University and Edition-S with kind support from Danish Arts Foundation.
