ORAKEL presents itself as a parable. It is a piece about the replacement of an orakel in ancient Pythia, but we imagine that, instead of ancient Greece, these actions take place in an atemporal time. This allows the audience to imagine the mystery and majesty of the gods through familiar pictures of fashion, culture, and humanity.
