Further InformationThe theatre´s description of the production: An innovative and unique concept of classic text "The Lady from the Sea" fused with some dialect folk tales of Baltic Sea coast finally to be adapted into one voice visualized by the movement. The moving image of half human half ephemeral female body forming a serial of poses imitating a path of marble statues from which the voice comes out. The mermaid from the folk tale asks for freedom - not getting it she is forced to stay on the earth to die. Ellida is imprisoned on the Earth and haunted by an apparition of her past - a mysterious man who could be her other self, linking her to The Sea - the environment of her origin. She is like the mermaid calling for freedom and facing death if does not receive it. Surprisingly she gets what she yearns for. The freedom is given to her from deep affection. In return she decides to stay on the earth recognizing the human sense of life, which is the phenomenon of love. Solo Etude - Ellida brings the audience to the acceptance of our human condition with its limitations; reflects rare moments of bliss, mystery but also of tranquility. The simplicity of the idea cuts the distance between the audience and protagonists creating the sensation of complicity. The emotional view of the universe is the foundation of Kropka Theatre. Each of the stark, simple works is an integral unit of a creative process, which explores the possibility of a theatre where the physical and textual elements have equal importance; and where the lived, emotional world of performer and audience, and the formal, abstract beauty of the piece are in perfect balance.
