On 28 October AKHE Theatre will perform at Erarta Stage their new performance.
Bardo Todol — Tibetan Book of Dead is the base for the performance.
But the show won't be just illustration or paraphrase of the text, we expect it would be detailed and leisured contemplation about beauty of Life and majesty of Death.
And the spectacle doesn't become а summarizing, but new knowledge about ourselves with mistakes, experiments and paradoxes.
We believe that spectacle — reflection about a death must be maximum alive itself.
We decide to prepare the performance in the multy–genre theatre construction.
Each day we could compile the new combination, which is most relevant for exact moment, day, practice and case.
For the Between Two at the moment we wish to put together performance, installation, «new drama», dance, singing, masks, mystery, rituals, singing, film projection, video-mapping...
For this complicated aim we decided to make N episodes each 10-20 minutes and each with scrupulous preparing and rehearsed.
We will invite audience for the final presentation of each episode, therefore the process becomes a meta-performance, each short presentation like mini premier.
Than this process will be continues and in ideal lasts until the death of actor.
For now we prepared 5 episodes each with own design and set and each is different with context.
“Between two. Karmic storm” is a part of the “Between two” cycle which can be described as a theatrical extravaganza featuring a real pool on stage and ‘reptiles dances’ in the genre of Russian Butoh.
