opening night: 04.03.2006 r.
The creators of the performance, using means of theatrical expression: fine art, music, movement, word and scene's metaphor propose their own contemporary interpretation of mythical conception of the man and world functioned in Greek culture.
The aim of the performance is not to copy the reality of ancient Greece, the whole reconstruction of the mythical vision of the world or presenting the mithical stories in a detailed way.Mythology is a base and a reason for showing on a scene what is deeply human and everlasting. There are different myths composed in this performance. Among them are myths about: Prometheus, Ariadne and Theseus, Minos and Minotauras, Daedalus and Icarus, Orpheus and Eurydice.Plots intertwine and complement one another so that everything becomes one well organized and coherent unit reflecting people's longings and desires.The performance is more about human being than about gods and heroes. On the scene we can observe people put in different and extreme situations, in the face of death and pain, experiencing strong feelings as love, hate and fear.
The inspiration for the artistic side of this performance was a Greek sculpture. The idea of stage design is a contemporary variation based on Greek's beauty canon. Pupet forms refer to Greek art, from one hand they take an inspiration from it , from the other hand they object to it. Actors' action aim at animating Greek statues. Movement and choreography are of a great importance for the whole performance.
We rate this performance among the animation theatre. Animating something which is dead matter has the symbolic meaning. First of all, stage design part of the performance refers to Greek vision of human beings' history as a continous change from simple, lower forms to better and more advanced ones. Secondary, animation of sculpture forms is a clear sign of a main idea hiding behind this performance: emphasis these values from myths which are everlasting.
