Janus mystery and carnival

“Attain to utmost emptiness. Cling single-heartedly to interior peace. While all things are stirring together. I only contemplate the Return. For flourishing as they do. Each of them will return to its root. To return to the root is to find peace. To find peace is to fulfill one’s destiny. To fulfill one’s destiny is to be constant. To know the Constant is called Insight. If one does not know the Constant, One runs blindly into disasters. […]”

(Lao Tzu’s Tao-Teh-Ching)

The team of Sinum Theatre has created a performance dedicating to the theme of winter solstice. The performance used poems and scenes from the life of Janus Pannonius (Hungarian Renaissance poet) and in the same time evoked the image of Janus, the ancient Roman Divinity, who was a determinant figure for cycle changes.

As part of the Riote 3 project our general aim is to investigate ancient mythologies as a potential tool for contemporary performance in order to consider and sense a different quality of presence towards our natural environment.

Many thank to Shoshin Theatre, to Teatro Nucleo and to Take Art. Having done all these in one month was like a whirlwind for all of us, an extremely intensive period.
