About the performance
Chamber Musical About Normal Human Being in One Act
F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s short story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is fascinating and not only because of its extraordinary idea, but also because it addresses two important themes that are relevant to people of all ages: the relentless flow of time and the desire to suit the accepted norms of society. Along with the main character Benjamin Button, who is born as a 70-yearold man and disappears as an infant at the time of death, the creators of I – Benjamin Button will let audience to experience the unusual existence of a unique person through soulful music and the aesthetics of contemporary puppetry.
The performance will look for answers to the questions that each of us may have asked ourselves at least once in our lifetime: Am I doing everything according to my conscience? Will anyone love me for who I am? Will I be accepted in my community if I please the wishes and standards of it? How many “masks” will I have to put on to find the real, authentic me? The performance is a tribute to all the misfits and those who aspire to be in tune with themselves.
