The Continuo Theatre: The Eighth Day

70min

Oct. 7 and 8 ∣ 20:00 ∣ Mapo Art Center

Performance combining puppet and physical theatre

 

The puppet performance The Eighth Day is inspired by the oldest written reference of the human history – fragments of myths, stories and poetry from ancient Near East. The texts of the Sumerians, the Akkadians, the Hittites, the Ugarits or the Israelis refer not only to the beginnings of the human civilisation but also to the rudiments of the human race, society as well as individual regardless of the period, cultural differences and historical background.

 

The performance, which is based on the dramatization of the original mythological themes, combines the elements of physical and puppet theatre accompanied by live music. It consists of three stories about the ambiguity of human existence. about our desire to overcome our human fate, and about our constant succumb to philistinism, envy, fear and hatred.
