NOTHING SAD – 25. 2. / 20:00 / STUDIO ALTA
VERTEDANCE, PETRA TEJNOROVÁ A KOL.
A dance game loosely inspired by J. Kepler´s essay ‘On the Six-Cornered Snowflake – A New Year’s Gift’. And by playing with energy, physicality and organisation… Physical laws and chemistry determine our world, just like our history and memory determines us. Energy will raise the pulse of both dance and imagination. Motion, dance and body are perceived in the present moment – it is here and suddenly it is not, it disappears for good. Or was it here at all? Three bodies in space, their sudden arrangement; and the ceaseless change of matter and shape releases the memories, emotions and images. How much life can we squeeze into a single frozen moment?
