It started as a unicellular organism …
Then we resembled a fish, an amphibian, a reptile, a primitive mammal
before we were a human fetus
No one knows why we never became a bird
No one knows why every child dreams it can fly
Just like Icarus tried to reach the sun with wax and feathers, modern humans try to transcend their own human status through science, genetic manipulation and plastic surgery. Just as in the old myth however, our unsolvable desire for perfection will make us fall.
The impressive imagery of young theater producer Maya Wuytack competes with the myth of Icarus. With her partners in crime she starts the battle to break out of the boundaries of language, dance and music. The primal desire is confronted in a willfull way full of poetry and humour.
The conjunction of this Group of young artists of POST.TRAUMcollectiv has made Ademlozing a breathtaking performance.
