Philoktet (heroic warrior and best archer in the Greek army) is poisoned by his own super weapon, which he has inherited from Hercules, and on the way to war in Troya soon he is obsessed by cruel visions.

Ancient sources tell this story in a very different way and speak of a snakebite which wouldn’t heal up. Left behind by his comrades on the island Lemnos, Philoktet tries to heal the snakebite… Or rather- as nowadays many US soldiers to handle a war trauma and understand the world and its laws in a new way… The battle of the heroic man against the female parts of his mind soon reaches its climax in surrealistic images.

In the leading parts: Mack Kubicki (PHILOKTET) and Kathrin Wankelmuth (PSYCHE), the (animation) films by Ivó Kovács (Budapest) go along with the production. The acoustic installation by Jules Desgoutte (Lyon) recreates the sound-space, in which Brigitte Küpper (moved voice and language) as a NARRATOR accompanies the events on stage in a singing and narrative way.
