The Messiah for Dummies

11. november 2020
UrFear festival performance by Gunawan Maryanto.
This is an update to:
Multitude of Peer Gynts

Gunawan Maryanto’s modular work is founded on the aspect of messianism – Peer Gynt as a messiah/prophet – which continuously appear in Peer Gynt’s storyline, starting from the individuality of Peer Gyntism that he heralded, to prophetic episodes when he encountered a nomadic tribe under Anitra’s leadership, to the thoughts he unwrapped as he faced the end of his life. Gunawan chose to place messianism under a microscopic lens
