(Premiere 2009, Brotfabrik Berlin)
The legend of the Icarus is an allegory for a dreamer or an artist, who is revolting against the rules of society and fighting for indecency of his artistic work. In times of technical progress the human being feels likes living in an air bubble.
Communication happens mostly via Internet or short messages on the mobiles, warfare and playing computer games becomes close in the way they are accomplished.
If the “Icarus” risks entering reality, he is not able to connect to it. Sensory overload, overstraining, hectic pace befall him. He tries to build up his dream world again. But it can never be the same.
The illusion is gone.
