The Octopus Tarot Labyrinth – that has been invited to Sziget Festival every year since 2003, and has been invited to other festivals in Győr, Budapest, Novi Sad and Lille – follows an exceptional performance form in which the message is especially individual: through interactive communicative situations you are called into a self-knowledge performance or if you like into a philosophical roll-game. The scene is an octagonal, three-dimensional labyrinth without dead ends from which you have to find the way out.

The labyrinth is the path of the mystery of initiation and rebirth. Not only the form of the convolutions makes the way a labyrinth but principally the mental change born in us because of the performed journey. In this labyrinth the mystery of “labyrinth” and “Tarot”, like the life path and its stations interweave.

By entering the labyrinth you can choose from 24 cards turned upside down. These cards are several thousand years old symbols of our life-roles – the Major Arcana (the word “Arcanum” means remedy) – and you will personalize one of them during the self-knowledge pilgrimage wearing a hat the colour of which is in compliance with the chosen Arcanum.

If you start your journey in the labyrinth to find yourself and to get to know yourself, in small spaces along the convolutions, Living Mirrors – the Major Arcana revived from the cards – will wait for you and show their reflections from the aspect of their roles to your role. Your task will be to recognise which are the mirrors that reflect your personality or your present life-role the most. On the way you can make notes about the certain experiences of the encounters – we give you a booklet for it.

The performance inspires you to meditate on the different essential archetypical ideas of life – that are recognizable in the Tarot cards – about their relations and their presence in your life or in your actual life situation. The aim of the performance is that you understand and live your role, and you make revelations and decisions which will also have an impact on your individual live.

For the self-recognition game it is recommended to know the meanings of the Major Arcana, so you can easier delve into the interpretation or empathy of the meanings of messages addressed to your role.
