"No man is an island, entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. "
For Whom the Bell Tolls.
John Donne (1572-1631).

"This production is about the tamed death, which you are dating when falling asleep or slipping into the border state of the retreating consciousness. People, separated in real life, in a dream "are connected as words composing a poem, or sounds in a piece of music". "Diving from the upper layer of sleep deeper, ... into a world devoid of speech and images, people turn into the sounds of the ancestral language, which one can use to address God directly. And out of these sounds "the body of the first man Adam Kadmon, who was both a man and a woman ..." is being born. "Whether we remember it or not, but every time in a dream we encounter Someone - be it a man or a woman, a child or an old man, a human or an angel, whether we are fighting him or following him, - waiting for this encounter makes us close our eyes.» Dnitry Aryupin, theatre director.
