SEPIA

SEPIA production is inspired by Woman in the Dunes, a novel by a Japanese writer Kōbō Abe. But it is not an adaptation of the story, but an attempt to reproduce a human state in certain circumstances. The sand in the performance is both a life environment of the heroes, a symbol of the time and an external factor transforming the consciousness. It flows from glass flasks onto dancing men and women, covers the stage transforming it to a picturesque scene. It decrees the rhythm, the atmosphere, choreography and character, it becomes the main character of the performance and the habitat for the actors. The infinity of the sifting sand is emphasized by the long, haunting sounds of the symphony by Avet Terteryan.

Running time – 30 minutes
