The dancer, actor and stage director Duda Paiva (Netherlands), by uniting the elements of contemporary dance and puppet theatre, has created a contemporary interpretation of the play by Rainis Golden Horse, which will lead the spectators into the world of hope and hopelessness, light and darkness, rulers and subjects. Researching the dialectics of opposites, the director regards the hand of Saulcerīte (“One Who Hopes for Sun”) as a fight among the black and the white, transferring the plot of the play unto the square of chess game. It is a cruel game, but at the same time the main hero Antiņš carries a naive message that warms up hearts and in quite unexpected manner stupefies us with its openness.
