Andrašková – Uhlířová: Silva Rerum – A Scenic Sketch About an Eight-Sided Dice
The scenic sketch Silva Rerum is inspired by the work of award-winning Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk. Traces of individual events amass in layers, they overlap and mix―be it underground as forgotten treasures or in people’s memories and their stories―until the notions of place and time lose their meanings and only a permanent act of storytelling remains. Silva Rerum as a storytelling not only through words but also by the means of creating images and sounds when individual processes of communication accumulate in layers, overlap, and mix to form a live kaleidoscope-like collage.
