Design and direction, choreographer and performer ? Jan Komarek
Co-creation and interpretation ? Honza Malik
Duration ? 20 MIN.
A dance for one man, one table, one chair, one light, and one sound.
Halfnaked body and its fumbling path on the tabletop, lighted only by one light
bulb is surrounded by the ?unknown universe.? It speaks to us with the verve
and urgency of Francis Bacon?s painting about the status of man in the world:
the fragility, vanity and the unpredictability of its existence… Nomination for the Best Interpretation Award 2009.
«… the space of the table reduces the movement vocabulary to contorted, bizarre movements, which however do not seem bizarre at all. There is a touching fragility in them and a fear and vulnerability radiating from the body of the charismatic Malik, whose performance in this piece is truly impressive» Daniela Zilvarova / www.tanecniaktuality.cz
