Demigods who eat their children. Titans born from a testicle. Women
who throw their son off the mountain, because… too ugly. Freaky
snakes crawling out of heads. And a supreme god who regularly
transforms into a bull in order to seduce young girls.
However bizarre and incomprehensible they seem, the Greek myths are
still incredibly influential today. Held(in) is an energetic whirlwind
of fat beats, absurd stories and special outpourings. By sharing their
favorite Greek myths and personal stories, the performers take you on
a quest for what true heroes are. In a compelling final phase, a
lawsuit is filed against Zeus. Ultimately, the public decides what to
do with this Supreme God in 2022. Will he keep his hero status or fall
off his pedestal?
