Unconsciousness of the mind as a lonely, crooked character, living in an attic inside of its human’s head…
The performance is in English.
Using clowning techniques and drawing inspiration from butoh dance, The Playground of the Unconscious Self is a solo performance that will guide you to the core of one person’s intimate perspective of our most common experiences: childhood, traumas, love stories, sexual drive, purpose, randomness.
The Playground of the Unconscious Self personifies unconsciousness of the mind as a lonely, crooked character, living in an attic inside of its human’s head. While being very happy for the rare company of the audience, the character tries to show them a piece of his world, simultaneously revealing the most fragile parts of his owner’s mind. During the show there are highlights of conflict between the unconsciousness and the person he is trapped in, exposing the lack of harmony in their relationship.
