Experiment to free the Knight of Foolness’ tomb from the power of Ratio’s noblemen.
They don’t even get the fooleries in our midst!
People! Join us and we go together into the Unknown for freeing the tomb!
Theater, dance, fine art, music, film and installation.
Does our perspective and imagination have an impact on the world’s development? Making our dreams happen is foolness, obligation or just the life itself?
The 400 years old figure of Don Quijote is a new chance to ask this question. But who is this man? A dangerous man (for himself and others too) who is a daydreaming lover, the champion of justice, a wise old intellect, a bloodthirsty, lunatic old man, a sentimental lover, a good friend or a neurotic suffering from manic depression and hallucinations?
We created our gallery into theatrical space where all living mobile-installations manifest a Don Quijote analogue. Everybody is Don Quijote on these installations, regardless of the gender. Dulcinea is hiding among the spectators while Sancho is the guard.
The projected „fake spectators” on a wall are gladly paying attention the happenings so the success is guaranteed.
As usual, we count on the spectators (the real people) as part of our play, so we create an intimate performance with limited number of viewers in the Artus’s gallery formed into a theatrical space.
