Descent of Innana
This ancient Sumerian myth
was written on stone tablets in approximately 1750
BC and was probably part of an oral liturgy for
at least a thousand years before that.
Innana, Queen of the Great
Above hears the moaning of her sister Erishkagal
, Queen of the Great Below.
With great courage Innana descends into the underworld
passing through the seven gates guarding that domain.
This is an intense show about death and renewal.

flute and harmonic flute.
