Raum is a place of encounter with our demons, our fears and our forgiveness. It is a place of confrontation and a search for inner balance in order to move forward in peace.

This performance seeks to accept the darkness that sometimes dominates us, and to soften it by creating a space without judgment and without fear. Raum is a space of liberation

and to speak out, it is a stifled cry that we have that we have kept inside us for too long.

Azathoth approaches cosmic-horror and existential-dread, drawing on the literary works of H.P. Lovecraft.  The audience is invited into a meditation on hermeneutics, twisting and bending and disorienting, proliferating and prolonging the act of perception and interpretation. A play of meaning-making, transient and precarious. Savoring aporia, containing the existence of a reality beyond grasp, a tempest of beliefs and truths.

 

Devised as a postdramatic-experiment, the piece attempts to conceptualize an act of creation as chaotic and multiple. Seeking to manifest the disintegration of logic, the harrowing hounding for knowing the unknowable that is at the eye of cosmic horror - on the level of artmaking and performance.
