Eternal Return is a strange ride. Imagine being able to view your entire life from any vantage point. What if you could observe your older self through the eyes of your youth or watch yourself from the perspective of a houseplant in the dusty corner of your childhood living room? Set in an otherworldly waiting room, we watch as one deals with trials and tribulations of a predetermined experience. In this uncanny space, a story unfolds and refolds in on itself stumbling through an ineffable existence from multiple viewpoints. Thar Be Dragons’ production,


Eternal Return is a full-length evening work drawing inspiration from concepts of eternal recurrence, a concept that the universe and all existence and energy has been recurring, and will continue to recur, in a self-similar form an infinite number of times across infinite time or space.

Premiere 05.11.2021 Valvesali - Oulu, Finland
