Three young couples are at the regular dance meeting in an apartment of the friends group. The evening does not run as usual, because boredom arises. One agrees to switch to an inspiring mind game. How can the development of humanity continue? Before the game begins, the friendship has to be confirmed and celebrated with a Greek Sirtaki – but the traditional dance should be reinterpreted. The first dance in the dance drama “From Ape to Human“.
Why the tune mentions Greek dance Sirtaki
This was the idea, when the composition was planned. Well known from the motion picture „Sorbas the Greek“, Sirtaki became a symbol for friendship. It should not be a copy of Mikis Theodorakis’ composition, but it should have a relationship to it. Composer Horst Grabosch only took two parameters from the song as a base: lengths and acceleration. He added some humorous announcements, to give exaggerated symbolism of the original dance a smile. This is already in the first song a hint to the ending of the drama.
