LILA: THE DEMIURGE’S SECRET PLAY
“LILA: The demiurge’s secret play” is a puppet, dance, opera and shadow theatre performance for adults and youth. By denouncing the traditional literariness of Lithuanian theatre, the multi-genre performance reminds us of the universality of the Spanish baroque theatre. It’s an allegorical story of two complementary plots. From a view of a key-hole you can see how Earth that was born out of a single accidental idea of the Creator millions of years ago. It is an allegorical dream that universally tells us about the three bases of our existence that have reached the limit of their interrelationship – the man, the earth and the god.
The main axis of the performance is an world full of accidents and paradoxes because of a lousy demiurge to create the world. So it’s a playful plot of kaleidoscopic images. It takes us inside the collective cultural conscience of the world and making fun of various cultural icons of their time. In the second part of the performance we are experience a futuristic and post-apocalyptic world. The forest spirits of the earth sees destruction by man. It wakes up seek vengeance for the one who enslaved the world. For the one whom has forgotten about the truth in his illusory war games.
