‘PAN the goat-god’ is an interdisciplinary piece by composer Ruben Zahra portraying the dark and complex profile of the primeval god.

There is no place for ‘love’ in Pan’s world.
… the rape of the nymph is not a love story
… music is not a serenade.
… dance is ritual to the dissonant tones
of a Mediterranean flute.
