What the client asked for – Professional Poster illustration and fitting flyers
IKARUS is an improvised one hour one man play telling Ikarus’ story from the perspective of Ikarus himself telling it to the lost souls down in the world of death, after his fall.
On a Stage lined with foil and filled with water Tobias Rohde kneels in the wetness dressed in spare linen clothing inspired by the old tales and shredded, almost featherless wings, molten and stained with puss and blood, and tells the story of how he did it on purpose recklessly, regardless of the consequences, because getting to experience and live it, really live it once was worth dying for. Feathers swim around the pool, and this minimalistically illustrated Poster was the advertisement he wanted.
This poster is part of a series of theater pieces which are ongoing but with years inbetween, so the third is in the process of being written. See the whole series here.
