MORPHOMEN - Human Archetypes

Performers wrapped in elastic textile give breathe to colorful abstractions called morphomen. These archetypal incarnations of human soul summon peacetime and war that has changed from time to time during centuries in Stromovka park. In peacetime two characters interact: the blue melancholic one that represents adulthood while the sanguine orange one represents childhood. The blue costume is a long tube with two balls on both ends, the performer takes place in the middle. One of the balls represent consciousness and the ball at the end of the tail simbolises remembrance. The orange costume is a short piece of elastic textile tube in which the performer is positioned transversely and like that the costume works against straightening so this character takes always a grotesque shape. A unique possibility that the sanguine can be born from the melancholic. During war the red choleric character appears who acts energetic, disciplined but a part of its gestural language is struggle and pain. In one side of the costume’s long tube stands the puppeteer and in the other stands a stick. A variety of living sculptures can be formed from it corresponding to different aspects of a warrior. The black phlegmatic morphoman stands for old and wise people who have learned the lesson of resignation. It is pulling a long black tail. This character does not change its shape just walks forward slowly. Finally it reaches the state of grace and the most simple white archetype will be born.
