“Samaia or Triamazikamno”, a performance written and directed by
The performance intends to show how the persons whose inner world is emotionally unbalanced are subject, in general terms, to three main types of attitudes and status: aggression, agitated happiness and depression.
Because of these uncontrolled emotions, a degradation of the human being’s inner world begins, with potentially destructive consequences.
If a human being understands the destructive power of these uncontrolled emotions and is able to bring them to harmony by way of an inner transformation, he will transform aggression into a positive creative power, depression into inner quietness and agitated happiness into love, so that he will achieve inner and outer harmony with the whole universe.
(1) (Samaia is the title of a Georgian Traditional Folk dance, performed by three women united in the dance in harmonious way;
Triamazikamno is a word created by George Gurdjieff in his ‘Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson’ to signify that for anything that happens in the universe, three forces must be present: a positive force, a negative force, and a neutralizing force.

Looking at the world vice versa or from a different point of view is an attempt to see, from an artist’s standpoint, the world with its past, present and future as if the time would not have existed, and an attempt to understand the influence between the microcosm and macrocosm existing in the universe.
