The performance "Emigrant Paradise" by Dimitar Dinev examines the behavior of several gastarbeiters after the tragic death of their 41-year-old friend during working at a construction site in Austria.
In this extreme situation, the true nature of the characters is manifested. When they are stunned by what happened, when they are confused and do not know what to do or what not to do. Then the most hidden corners of the human soul are unlocked.
They fall into euphoric exaltation, they are constantly agitated, in abnormal surreal states, and in fact need to repent, they need help. The elements in their souls blast. They drown in grief their grief. The acceptance of death is under the sign of the bacchanalia, the feast, the orgy. They seek support in the ritual, in the beliefs. They try to find the invisible ties between the dead and the living, between the earth and the sky, between real and unreal life. They are cynically honest and reckless in their behavior. But also moving in the attempts of human closeness to each other. They are gradually revealed, ready to accept the guilt of the other because of the common fate and survival attempts. This is more than a common cause. This is a gesture of redemption. After all, they are connected fatefully and forever.
The overall behavior of the characters reveals an individual rebellion against reality, but there is no vision of a future horizon.
You will see an absurd spectacle in which there are extreme ecstatic states, a fast and all-absorbing rhythm, a lot of passion, pain, mysticism, parody and black humor.
