The human being stands against the Universe and the bodies on stage tell about the struggle between the Law of Men and the Law of Nature, the crash between imposition and refusal.
A woman stands against the will of a tyrant: the visionary only can make the power fall down opening new perspectives.
The city of Tebe will heal only with sacrifice. Antigone wants to fight. Himmel Theatre offer her their bodies and voices from far away.
Blooming Out is a clown show, interpreted by two Brazilian actresses, that explores in a light and comic way the most intriguing moments of the feminine universe. The fascination of beauty, girly plays, the first time putting on make-up, the body’s development including its feminine parts, arrival of the period, the first kiss, virginity loss, oppression and fear, maternity, love, demands and social taboos, work, happiness and growing old; these are some of the many fascinating and scary themes that build the story of this plot.
Blooming Out uses only non-verbal language, creating touching scenes of great power and beauty.
