Burian, Hrdlička, Novotný: Soliloquy
Soliloquy affiliates three distinctive creative personalities – the writer and translator Pavel Novotný, the musician and audio designer Jan Burian jr. and the audiovisual artist Jaroslav Hrdlička. The production is an adaptation of texts by Pavel Novotný, which are interpreted and commented upon within an environment of a morphing projection table in the presence of three mystical voices. The authors are interested in the boundaries of comprehensibility, the unknown, shifts of perspective, new languages, surprise, mystery and humour. They work with the principles of the phenomenon of ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), and are also inspired by the practice of Deep Listening from the American musical composer Pauline Oliveiros.
