HIDDEN ROOM "A"
First of a series of 22 new circus works inspired by the magical and hidden world of the Major Arcana of the Rider Waite Tarot and the sacred letters of the alefato that correspond to each letter (Hebrew sacred alphabet). Hidden room A is inspired by the wisdom of the first letter of the alefato, “Aleph”, whose associated letter is “0. The madman ", related to the beginning of all things and the pure Consciousness of Being.
The play takes place in a room where "Aleph" falls deeply asleep and dreams that he is taking a trip to the newly created world of matter, to the "valley of experimentation", where he materializes to have an initiatory experience in which creation lives of the Universe, as well as the discovery of his internal universe and the fight with his greatest secrets and fears.
In this "room" (which is at the same time your mind represented by an ancient circus), you will live a dreamlike experience surrounded by mystical, mysterious and fantastic characters related to creation, archetypes and the major arcana of the Tarot. These characters, full of hidden truths and enigmatic mysteries (master of ceremony, the dark woman, the bearded woman, the circus star, the fortune teller, the snake charmer, the animals), will lead the story through the events of the creative mind. of a dreamed universe through dance movements, acrobatics, flights, juggling, humor and music.
