Design Statement

The Clown's life is coming to an end. He is about to enter the unknown, but before "final curtain call," he needs to leave his collar behind, taking the last steps only with the nakedness of his very soul. What lies behind the clown's perpetually smiling, painted mask? In this production, the disguise is removed both literally and figuratively, as the performers invite the audience on an unusual inner journey into imaginary realms, where the layers covering and protecting reality disappear.
The setting follows the road into the really depth of personality, loosing one after the other the covering layers like clothes, skin, flesh at the end, and the final walls disappear arriving to the lonely soul...
