THEATRE NO99 / ENE-LIIS SEMPER

NO42 El Dorado: The Clowns' Raid of Destruction

/Estonia/

Incurable insatiability is the underlying urge that drives man. Nothing is ever enough, no boundaries hold for ever. Ene-Liis Semper's new work takes the audience onto a rough trip to the darker side of craving. Exploring the pardoxes inherent in the human condition, „El Dorado: The Clowns' Raid of Destruction“ creates a theatrical language of its own that is both visually stunning and unrelenting in terms of the level of energy on stage. Developing clownesque aesthetics far beyond the merely entertaining, Semper's new production reaches a high level of abstraction.

Ene-Liis Semper's excellence over the years in various artforms from video-art to installations to scenography to film make her a director whose work is an amalgam of different approches. Her ouevre is always marked by strong conceptions, an aesthetics of abundance and the pursuit of a total Gesamtkunstwerk.
