“I know a bank where the wild thyme grows, where oxlips and the nodding violet grows…” It is there that the Színláz Company, going back to the traditions of Greek theater on a special Friday evening between the summer solstice and midsummer, on June 22nd, presents its offerings of dream and rapture to Apollo and Dionysus.
