The 16th International Theatre Poster Biennale  

Probably everyone is familiar with the instructive myth about Icarus' flight. This is a tragic theme of failure at the hands of hubris when you want "to fly too close to the sun" ignoring all instructions. And, as a result, you fall down with burned wings.

That is why this poster in an artistic way depicts the wings as a falling fireball.

There are a lot of interpretations of the myth in an art (literature, paintings, movies etc.), but one of the most significant for me is a ballet in 3 acts directed by Vladimir Vasiliev in 1971 for the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.
