In this production base on Thus Spake Zarathustra by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, director Matjaž Berger and his co-creators have elected to walk the line of Nietzsche’s bridge between animal, man and superman. In doing so they have affirmatively mapped out the intimate path of man’s inner transformation. According to Nietzsche, Zarathustra, who “rechristens” the Christian commandment “love thy neighbour” as “love for the furthest”, is someone who teaches people and constantly encourages them to transcend their own selves, which, in identifying and pursuing the will itself, is the power they need to seek and recognise. Man is always an “over-going” for Nietzsche: a bridge not a goal, a rope over an abyss. On his way he seeks fellow travellers, fellow creators with whom to share and create. Willing emancipates: for willing is creating.
“This then is my path, where is yours?” Thus spake Zarathustra.
