Details

Oedipus, a marionette made almost entirely of ice, sets out on a redemptive voyage accompanied only by Antigone, their long passage punctuated by poetic visions of water and fire, shadow and light. Rejected, hurt and alone, the blind king abandons his throne and takes to the road. Daughter Antigone is his guide, a puppeteer in human form dressed in a protective felt cloak. Together, as they walk across misty landscapes, his metamorphosis is conveyed by his melting physical state until, finally, they reach the crossroads of the world and he disappears from sight. Featuring a wondrous, luminous ice puppet made anew for each performance, Anywhere is loosely based on the book Oedipus on the Road by Belgian author Henry Bauchau. Combining animated elements with ephemeral materials that transform before our eyes, Le Theatre de L'Entrouvert have devised a show that contrasts delicacy and strength, silence and sound, to captivating effect.
