Miss Liberty depicts a poetic process of redefining freedom. Miss Liberty transforms from larvae in a cocoon into a butterfly – this mystic journey from unconsciousness, state of hibernation, leads to liberty, creativity, divinity. Miss Liberty is a transmitter of whispers and hopes for freedom.
Freedom is the beauty of rebellion, comprehension, danger, responsibility, the source of human dignity, the existence of goodness, the opposite of ignorance.
During the performance you will hear freedom voices from all over the world, who will express excerpts from the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. Despite the time lapsed, the declaration (created in 1948) protecting basic human rights and fundamental freedoms couldn’t be more valid.
All human beings are born free. Sometimes one gives up its freedom voluntarily by locking oneself in a cage. What is your cage made of?
