Hide description

In his exploration of various means of artistic expression director Andrejs Jarovojs pays special attention to the use of figurative stage language, the interplay of signs, and personal communication with the spectator. Each performance is a special microcosm with its own rules, which creates a meeting place for the imaginations of the artists and the audience.

With “Wood Paths” Andrejs Jarovojs returns to non-text-based theatre. It is physical and visual performance. Through playing with the materiality, symmetry and asymmetry of wood, the creative team speaks directly about humans and culture, exploring the rules for the coexistence of the old and the new, the relationship and the developmental potential between the two. It is a mandala-like performance about the never-ending human striving to create order in the world around us and the short-lived victories in this effort.
