Ki omOs kineitai
"The Master and Margarita"
July 23rd 2019
Kalamata's International Dance Festival

Inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov’s homonymous novel:
- I do not understand what will happen from now on.
- Surely something utterly absurd!

A surrealist tale in which the Devil himself, vengeful and tired, appears with his escort to cure the lack of faith, rebalance logic with the absurd, the feasible with the impossible, and ultimately scorn the trust of humans in what they arbitrarily define as reality. A scaffolding, with people hanging from it, is being dismounted. A performance devoted to the constructivist movement, which stubbornly denied romanticism before eventually glorifying it.
Excerpts from the constructivists’ Realistic Manifesto: 
“Above the tempests of our weekdays, across the ashes and cindered homes of the past, before the gates of the vacant future, we proclaim [that] efficacious existence is the highest beauty. 
Life knows neither good nor bad nor justice as a measure of morals… need is the highest and most just of all morals.
Life does not know rationally abstracted truths as a measure of cognizance, deed is the highest and surest of truths.
Space and time are re-born to us today.”
(Moscow, three years after the October Revolution)
