Maiju Tainio & Co.: Gilgamesh – Mortal

PREMIERE 8. & 11.11.

Find the copper box, Grasp the brass lock, open the lid of secrets, lift up the lapis tablet and read, how Gilgamesh wandered through ordeals.

“Don’t touch the art!” Gilgamesh – Mortal overturns this iron-clad prohibition and invites you to take a transgressive step into a unique, kinesthetic adventure in miniature scale – with all your senses!  Gilgamesh – Mortal is an experimance – a poetic game, a private ritual and a serene celebration of impermanence. Charged with the ancient Mesopotamian tale of a search for immortality it offers a gentle, playful space for sensitizing us to all that transience arouses in us. Sink into the oldest epic of the world from when history was timeless and get your hands dirty with art!
