ITHIR – the man, the cycle, the world. The play tells in 4 chapters of the infinity of the universe, of becoming and passing away and of the eternal cycle of nature.
Two dancers and a double bass player play, dance, perform without fear of clay in all consistencies, dripping wet to hard as stone. A static stage design comes to life, merges with the movement of the dancers and the archaic sounds of the music and changes into a large clayey setting. ITHIR impressively brings life cycles back into our consciousness and the realization: We humans are part of nature.
A two-metre-tall rod puppet plays a central role in the new dance theatre piece. The doll bears the name Ithir and is also the namesake of the entire production ITHIR. The figure of Ithir is a being that has inhabited our earth since ancient times. It has already survived countless enormous transformations of the earth's surface, seen life forms arise and die. As our life-giving atmosphere developed, or powerful ice ages paralyzed life on Earth, Ithir was always a silent observer. Through her sensitive perception, she got to know the tiniest cycles and understood their relationship to the huge cycles, which we humans can only call infinity.
