DYING ANIMALS DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR THEMSELVES
DYING ANIMALS DON"T FEEL SORRY FOR THEMSELVES
"When was the last time you were shot by an arrow and wandered the desert for a week?"
THAR BE DRAGONS bring a new creation to the atmospheric KAIKU Club in Helsinki. "Dying animals don't feel sorry for themselves" ponders the existence of fate. A ride through the testimonial, magical realism, and carnivalesque - a collage of images within the microcosm of the bar. At times surreal, the performance pulls the carpet back on the mind of two souls floating through their own lonesomeness. We observe the beautiful effort of people passing through life.
This production was supported by grants from the Kone Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre Finland/Taike, and Samuel Huber Art Foundation.
