Storyboard Text

  • It said Laios was doomed to be murdered by a son, his son and mine. But Laios, from what we heard, was murdered by bandits from a foreign country, cut down at a crossroads. My poor baby was only 3 days old when Laios had his feet pierced together behind the ankles and gave orders to abandon our child on a mountain, leave him alone to die
  • Jocasta: Oedipus, forget all this. Listen to me: no mortal can practise the art of prophecy, no man can see the future. One experience of mine will show you why. Long ago an oracle came to Laios. It came not from Apollo himself but from his priests.
  • I, I this voice of agony I am what place am I where? Not here, nowhere I know! What force, what tide breaks over my life? Pain, demon stabbing into me leaving nothing, nothing, no man I know, not human, fate howling out of nowhere, what am I fire, a voice, where where is it being taken?
  • Noble Kreon, touch me with your hand, give me a sign. Daughters, if you were older, if you could understand, there is so much more I would say to you. But for now, I give you this prayer- Live, live your lives, live each day as best you can, may your lives be happier than your father´s was.
