Created on an edited version of the glass-metalic sounds of Xenakis' Bohor (1962), Ditirambo is a prismatic passage. Artaud, Nietzsche and Derrida inspire this solo on writings. Dithyramb was a hymn to Dionysius, entity that is crucial in Artaud's as well as in Nietzsche's thoughts. According to Artaud, the only themes worthy addressing in theatre are love, crime, war and madness.

Ditirambo was performed in De Historische Kelders Arnhem in August 2005,
Made Under Arnhem Festival, Stichting Epicentrum
