The production evokes the past through an image-like, fragmentary and sometimes elusive structure of memories. By getting into their ancestors’ skin, the performers are showing us an era before they were born. Sometimes the scenes stop suddenly; the motion of the vigorous body becomes repetitive and the misshapen, heavy, rugged movements of the old-aged pass into abstract dance. The states of childhood and agedness play with each other. The rich scale of movements runs along a toddler’s unsteady steps and an elderly man’s wobbly walk.
The piece reveals the relations within the community, of the time spent together and next to each other from which the soloistic scenes emerge. Past and present are superposed by the microscopic examination of human life’s small moments. The performance explores a time that expands between life’s two endpoints - the first and last moment of immobility.
The production was sustained by The Administration of the National Cultural Fund and Bethlen Gábor Fund.
