At the Still Point of the Turning World
A drawn space, an abstract field, composed of hundreds of suspended marionettes. In this visual and choreographic project the marionettes form a compact, motionless community and illustrate a metaphor for hanging time, or beings, waiting to evolve into something that no longer belongs to them. What will the passing of the giant human beings bring? It is a story about the tension between the peace and turmoil, the human and motionless material world as well as the determined forces that make us move one way or another. Non verbal.
At the Still Point of the Turning World is a second part of the diptych by French stage director Renaud Herbin, presented in a Slovenian-French co-production. The TJP – Centre Dramatique National d’Alsace from Strasbourg endeavours to tangibly reveal the richness of modern performing creativity and its connectedness with the art and heritage of puppetry in particular.
