COME SEE COMME ÇA
Come see, Comme ça is about uncovering the nature of several people whom destiny has brought to one location. The work is inspired by the Baroque concept of paradox and contrast. The choreography is a story about human needs, which have a chance to appear only in certain specific circumstances. One of these situations is a party. At that moment, needs that are often hidden from the outside world override normal instincts and habitual behaviour, and both sides of the personality can be seen: friendly and warm as well as shameful and hateful. How much truth is in their behaviour? Come see. You will see that they are not happy. They feel "so-so", comme ci, comme ça.
The inspiration to create a chamber drama for three dancers was Dvořák's symphonic poem The Water Goblin. The storyline takes place in the present and speaks about interpersonal relationships and events that may be happening around us, often behind closed doors. The dramatic qualities of Dvořák's brilliant music enhance and highlight the conflict of love, passion and selfishness, which leads to a tragic end.
THIS IS NOT A KISS!
Polibek, pusa, hubička– the Czech language has so many variants of the word "kiss" with so many shades of meaning. A kiss can be formal, motherly, tender, passionate, but also an abstract idea, a muse or the kiss of death. Without kisses life is poor, grey and sad. We yearn for kisses and if we are not clear they can surprise us. We defend against kisses, because they may be too personal, intimate and penetrate where we don't want to let anyone in. A kiss is something that forever leaves traces in our lives and can change reality. The choreography is a look at what's to come or may come with a kiss, and what happens if we believe in its power.
