LIMEN – a strange and worrying encounter between two men in the snow
Limen (latin for threshold) marks a spot of access and transition. Originally inspired by Kafka’s „Before the Law“, Limen quickly breaks free from it and focuses primarily on expressing the characters’ inner lives. In the manner of a puppetry haiku, Uta Gebert spins a sparing and inspiring puppet piece made of sheer poetry.
As the snow has just stopped falling, a stone-cold wanderer is slowly getting back to life. He still has a long way to go. Suddenly he's facing the Unknown, a dark shadow taking the shape of a man trying to exert authority through an unequivocal silence. The wanderer oscillates between fear and rebellion.
