Synopsis: (Experimental Dance) The film follows six ARCHETYPES through a dream-like reality as they near the end of a cycle. Ares and Athena are fated into a timeless battle, siblings pitted against one another, their destinies inextricably forced to collide. Hermes carries the call to action for all thus setting the stage for a final struggle between order and chaos, light and darkness. In the balance hangs the prophetic Pandora, burdened with a key and plagued by nightmares symbolic of the impending storm. Wise Prometheus accompanies her as they journey off to find Atlas whom ultimately carries the portal to their final destination.

Production Background & Fun Facts: "Using Greek mythological archetypes and insights from the Monomyth Theory of Joseph Campbell as a base for inspiration, we are creating modern mythologies within an abstract narrative that live and breathe in the fabric of today's human psyche. Joseph Campbell said "Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths." 'THE ARCHETYPES' is an exploration into the private dreams that make up our new public myths today. A UNIQUE DANCE FILM "Dance on film is always an affirmation of the moving storyteller we have inside our bodies. It reminds us to listen to the body. The body speaks deeply to who we are as people and often times it speaks with more honesty and clarity than the mouth. For this reason alone we need more dance on film. It is one of the few ways we can keep our ancestral truths relevant in a modern society" Matt Reeves- Orange Grove Dance Co-Writer & Choreographer for THE ARCHETYPES.
