A dance duet of maturity on the verge of rottenness, at the meeting point of contemporary dance and physical theatre, depicts the genesis of one master – from admiration and enchantment to asymmetry and disgust. In the beginning there was attraction, instinct, which after a while was replaced by the predominance of the strength and power of the body. Hierarchy.
“The performance matter uses parody as its backdrop in order to give way the feelings of the approaching retirement age of dance performers. At the same time, it thematizes the state of our society, the position and relevance of dance, dancers and choreographers. The balanced acting and movement vocabulary of experienced performers allows them to approach heavy issues with lightness, playfully make themselves the objects of the humour. The piece, based on the lives of the creators, which has proven to be appealing to a wider spectrum of audiences, not only the dance one was. It was directed by Martin Hodoň, known for numerous collaborations with the dancers and for combining the movement with text, with a strong contribution of the dramaturg and in this case also the surprisingly mature performer Dáša Čiripová. The piece, promises an exceptional experience and the opportunity of much-needed (self)reflection.”
