An artificial rose in full blossom is just like a stunning mirage.
Artificial Roses is inspired by Gabriel García Márquez’s short story of the same name. The female lead is at her wit’s end in face of love and has to resort to occupying herself by making artificial roses, pretty yet never with any fragrance. The creators mock at her self-deception while questioning themselves. Combining physical movements, sounds and installation, this play explores the ambiguous relationship between illusion and reality in the flows of light, shadow and sound.
