– An inspiration to create the play was a clash of two strong feelings – annoyance with the omnipresent ignorance and very popular now denial of science and inability to accept all those pseudophilosophical overinterpretations of myths, regardless of their origin: whether they are Greek, Scandinavian, Celtic or Chinese. The clash of those two phenomena resulted in an idea to present a certain myth the way it was written, without misinterpreted, over-intellectual adds-on – says the director of the play, Kamil Przyboś.
The ancient myth of Prometheus who enables people’s creativity, passions, and stirs their interest in the world using the fire he stole from gods, is a basis of the play. The main protagonist is a representative of humanities, secularity, progress and science. He opposes Zeus, who symbolises dogmatic faith, unquestioning way of preserving traditions and blind, mindless obedience.
The play is based on the movement but it’s not solely a dancing nor pantomime performance. The main mean of expression is a stage movement in general, dance, acrobatics and equilibristics. “Prometheus” combines unusual show with drama, while its form alludes to the ancient theatre.
The play will be performed on 23, 24 and 25 January [February] in Impart (ul. Mazowiecka 17). Tickets (PLN 25-35) can be purchased in Impart box office, on the websites: strefakultury.pl, www.eventim.pl and in retail outlets (Media Markt, Saturn, Empik).
