Performed in a site-specific, purpose-built installation space reminiscent of sacred places, this highly immersive work invites audiences to participate in a unique ritual guided by the performer, who becomes a 21st-century shaman taking the audience into the unknown territories of the human mind.
Each of the daily shows (four per day, six on Fri, Sat & Sun) are performed by a different artist, each performing the same intricately choreographed work, but each bringing their own style and sense of self to the piece, resulting in quite different performances depending on who your artist might be.
Everyone is probably familiar with this form of loneliness, which is both terrifying and comforting, under the weight of which we can crumble; the sense that out of 8 billion people, we remain alone in the entire universe ….Inside the space, the borders are blurred by the creators; whilst the artist tenses all his muscles to achieve the effect that his body is floating weightlessly in space, we also travel with him. It is impossible to leave the tent without catharsis. Bence Vági’s direction is like an iron that smooths out the nerves that have been convulsed by everyday life. INDEX (Hungarian news site)
Once inside the venue, the seating, lighting, sound, set and rig work in harmony to make every single member of the 97-strong audience feel alone in the theatre and entwined with the performance. Just you and the artist.
Globally acclaimed director-choreographer Bence Vági, renowned for pioneering ground-breaking forms of circus and physical theatre worked with his team to create a magical installation inspired by the starry sky stretching over the desert; the place where human beings realise that we are merely tiny points in the infinite vastness of the universe.
