    • Synopsis
    • This incredible story is approximately four thousand years old and belongs to the now extinct Sumer culture, settled in the origins of human civilization. This is one of history´s most ancient stories, an epic tale about the father of all heroes.
      The myth tells the story of Gilgamesh, king of Uruk, the grandiose walled city he founded. This powerful monarch, son of a king and a goddess, tormented the people of his town until they grew tired of his abuse and implored the gods to stop him.
      In response, the deities created Enkidu, a being as powerful as Gilgamesh, his equal, to face him with the limits of his power. Gilgamesh´s dramatic process of humanization begins. The death of Enkidu, his partner and equal, sparks Gilgamesh´s awareness of his own mortality and so he begins his search for immortality.
      It is a powerful story, a timeless and universal existential drama with the charm of a mythical tale.
