Oh My God
Oh My God
KARL SAKS / HENDRIK KALJUJÄRV / TANEL RANDER
Inside each of us there are wide open windows through which consciousness enters and leaves. From the windows of consciousness one can see that we are all one great mass and also extraordinary individuals. We can develop ourselves by ourself or give ourselves away as freeware, as open source people. We are the 99%, we are the programmers of freedom. We work in a big corporation and we have free will. It has no windows, it is a big apple from which a piece has been bitten – a hole into the free world. Oh my god, we are worms in an apple attached to a fishing hook.
The genre of “Oh My God” is described by director Karl Saks as “physical theatre of alternating mental and emotional states”.
Premiere: October 31st, 2013 at Von Krahl Theatre, Tallinn
