ABEL SÁNCHEZ: A STORY OF PASSION

Author:
Miguel de Unamuno / Roos Lisette Parmas
Director:
Margaret Sarv

“Do you know, it seems to me that they might be making me up.”

“May not all of it perhaps be a dream of God, or of whomever it may be, which will vanish as soon as He wakes? And therefore when we pray to him, and cause canticles and hymns to rise to Him, is it not that we may lull Him to sleep, rocking the cradle of His dreams? Is not the whole liturgy, of all religions, only a way perhaps of soothing God in His dreams, so that He shall not wake and cease to dream us?” (Miguel de Unamuno, “Mist”)

What story have I decided to tell myself? Which role is assigned to me and what part do others play in my story? Or I, in the stories of others? Do we see those around us as people or just characters?

 

Margaret Sarv and Roos Lisette Parmas, students of the Department of Drama of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, have created a playful production based on Miguel de Unamuno’s philosophical text, elaborating on the pressure of making choices and the endless questions of finding oneself.
