Hey Lithuania! The Contemporary Intellectual Clown Theatre invites you to courageously recognize and enjoy the genre of buffoonery!The director Žilvinas Beniušis and the team of the incredibly talented actors seek to give you an experience that you will undoubtedly want to share with your grandchildren. Already people are spreading rumours that this performance is the best buffoonery western they have ever seen, let alone compared to those westerns which interpret the famous Odyssey by Homer!
At the epicentre of the show we meet the young actors’ troupe “Out Of The Box”, which since the times immemorial is trapped in an old drama theatre. Every year it is preparing the same premiere according to Odyssey, the epic poem by Homer. In this play, Ulysses with his fellows aims to return home after a war in Troy and to reunite with his wife Penelope. During the journey the cowboys will have to withstand the charms of the passionate Calypso, the seduction of Sirens, the rage of Cyclopes and other Wild West dangers of the ancient Greece.
Does the authentic primary identity exist? – the western asks us. Where is the home of the real “self”? There are some more meaningful questions which prompt us to think. Therefore, we are waiting for those of you who have missed such topics as real love and belly laugh!
Ennio Morricone is the author of the tunes played in the show.
