The Great Journey
ENCOUNTERS IN THE LABYRINTH OF LIGHTS
In collaboration with Theater Magica
A theatrical installation to be experienced on foot
The Great Journey describes human beings’ journey through life. For one night visitors can search for the route to the centre of a maze made from thousands of candles. Along the way they meet figures who have remained stranded along their life journeys…
“My heroes, I summon you for the journey!” The fool’s show-booth is the gate to another world. Lifelines of light reshape public spaces into a maze of countless candles to walk through, a unique creation for each location: a theatre of encounters, a theatre of atmosphere. Take the suitcase with the crown inside and discover the king in yourself; if you are given the feather, think of your dreams. Pick out a suitcase and seek out the path.
3 000 candles, 300 suitcases, eight characters acting the stories of their hopes and disappointments in simultaneous cycles throughout the performance. The visitors themselves become travellers – become players – searching for the way to the centre.
