Plato's Cave is a six-day mystery play for nine protagonists, three gods and a choir. The nine protagonists are members of the audience committed to the whole process.

During the performance the protagonists take a journey directed by a desire to move towards the beautiful. It consists of four acts, three of which are personal encounters with the gods. In the first act Aphrodite offers a choice. In the second act the protagonists will build a gateway with Dionysos. In the third act they will practice becoming real with Apollon. In the fourth act the temporary community of the protagonists gathers to liberate their true selves and celebrate the victory of love.

Each protagonist will visit the Dome four times, on different days. The detailed schedule is below.

THE PLAY IS FULLY BOOKED, BUT YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME AND OBSERVE THE PROCESS OF THE PROTAGONISTS.
