PSYCHOMACHIA

 

 

 

Of the arbitrariness of happiness. Dustin Klein and the dancers of the Bavarian State Ballet deal with the duel of virtue and vice, the whims of Fortune, symbolised in the medieval wheel of fortune.

 

superbia vs. humilitas, idolatria vs. fides, ira vs. paciencia, luxuria vs. temperantia. In Herrad from Landsberg’s 12th century illuminated manuscript Hortus Deliciarum, the Psychomachia illustrations depict the battles between the female virtues and vices. Overseeing these battles is the game show host Fortuna, deciding who will rise and who will fall by spinning the wheel of fortune.
