EULOGY - Superhero(es)
commission ofTANZ-LANDESBÜHNE SACHSEN
"The real hero is always a hero by mistake; he dreams of being an honest coward like everybody else." - Umberto Eco
"The disparity of nowadays society expectations vs. reality can often lead to feelings of discontentment and unworthiness. Humans live in an eternal unfulfilled desire to set themselves free.
Within a ritualistic manifestation, in "eulogy", everyday heroes overcome the crippling hollowness of duty to re-connect with their inner nature, vices and virtues.
The performers incarnate the never-ending endurance towards a final catharsis, as a quest of human nature unfree from sociological expectations.
"eulogy" is an hymn to rebirth within humans' own decadence."
