Ariadna is a new production brought to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe by Alyona Ageeva Physical Theatre PosleSlov, based in Russia. The company explores physical theatre and expression of themes and abstract physical storytelling through outstanding movement quality. Jo Tomalin talks to eight members of the cast and creative team, including Alyona Ageeva, artistic director, Constantine, creative director, and frequent collaborator David Block, musician and sound designer, based in Paris.
“Where can we find a connection between the two worlds in which we live – the world of determination (digits, reasoning) and the world inside (unexplored, full of Eros, frightening)? How can we explore this without losing sanity? Ariadna guides you through the labyrinths in which modern people roam: gender, body and its objectification, mundanity and mystical feeling. Dip into the primordial, to ancient mysteries and archetypical images, whilst experiencing the very moment of contemporaneity. In the liminal space of the show a new world is being constructed – a one-of-a-kind, never to be recreated.”
