Die, freeze, rise! / 2023 year
The main idea of the project finding ways of spiritual salvation during turbulent times. I worked with theater of the absurd aesthetics. The theater of the absurd arose as a reaction of total war, death camps, terror — under the sign of the apocalypse. Absurdism turned its hero into a puppet; an absurd hero is always an object, not a bearer of will.
Game and horror merge, death becomes a game, and life becomes an absurd nightmare. The title of the work also refers to game. “Die, “-and all participants freeze in awkward poses. “Rise”-and everyone comes to life again.
Speaking about spiritual salvation, I turn to Christian symbolism-icons and symbols of the apocalypse. By filming children, I create a playful, theatrical form of action. We create our play in which we don’t ask questions, where characters accept the meaninglessness of their existence. This acceptance gives the right to happiness.
