”Mythical Door”, was premiered at the 2016 Theater XIDTF National Performing Arts Festival, (IDTF) and it is being presented for the first time in Norway by performer and creator Mika Hibiki.
The play consists of scenes inspired by ‘Pasiphae’s tragedy’ and the ‘involvement of Ariadne with Minotaur’ from the Greek myth ‘Crete Labyrinth’, performed solo by montage body method.
Hibiki feels that the movement that springs from the depths of the body and overflows is “dance”.
”The body has the ability to feel it itself.
I do not need reasons.
The body knows.”
