Synopsis:

Zigurat is a celebration of being human. It is a vertical bridge between heaven, earth and the underworld. It is inhabited by all the gods and goddesses that we are, who make us who we are, and which we reach through our dreams. Zigurat is a journey to our most profund fears and desires, diving into that which makes us who we are, that which inhabits us. And Man created god in his own image and likeness.

Zigurat’s starting source are the archetypes of the collective unconcious, present in the mithology, traditions and tales of all cultures; the carriers of ancestral knowledge about the human psyche. Through the study of these archetypes and the symbols associated with them we have created ephemeral moments of theatre, poetic, fragmented, just like our dreams.
