Show Details

UK PREMIERE

 

The blind king Oedipus abandons his throne and sets out on a redemptive journey accompanied only by his daughter, Antigone. Their long wanderings are accompanied by visions of water and fire, shadow and light.


Loosely based on the book, Oedipus on the Road, by Belgian author Henry Bauchau, this striking production portrays Oedipus as a luminous puppet made of ice, remade for each performance. Antigone is his guide, a puppeteer in human form dressed in a protective felt cloak. Together, as they walk across misty landscapes, his metamorphosis is conveyed by his melting physical state until, finally, they reach the crossroads of the world and he disappears from sight.

 

Combining animated elements with ephemeral materials that transform before our eyes, Le Théâtre de L’Entrouvert has created a show that contrasts delicacy and strength, silence and sound, to captivating effect.
