The Living Room is an expedition of the human imagination into the unexplored realm of furniture. It takes place between the walls of a single room – the parallel universe of furniture that coexists with our universe. Here, each object has its own character, each acting in its own unique way. On the border between light and darkness, amidst the quiet scrape of wooden feet and creaking doors, furniture and the human body become a canvas upon which fantastic figures emerge and fade again. In his project, Lukáš Karásek balances on the edges of masked theatre, dance, and circus, and plays an exciting game full of imagination and humor.

tYhle is a collective of Czech and French artists working in contemporary movement and visual arts, tYhle is a platform for performance, dance and physical theatre. tYhle was founded by four artists Marie, Zuzana, Lukáš and Florent, who share the same vision of the contemporary scene: its duty to experiment and eliminate barriers. Lukáš Karásek was a student of Pierre Nadaud in the Klaunské studio of stage and film craft at JAMU in Brno. During his studies, he worked with Aleš Janák and Irina Andrejeva from Teatr Novogo Fronta or Karin Ponties from Dam de Pic. He also followed masterclasses about Mask theater with Giovanni Fusetti in Florence (2013). He graduated (2013) with the production Tešlon a Frkl, which he created together with Florent Golfier. After his studies, together with Florent, he founded the tYhle group, where he works together with Marie Gourdain and Zuzana Režná. In addition, he performs or creates dramaturgy in movement productions (Viktor Černický, Cécile da Costa), devotes himself to education at schools and worked as a carpenter for two years.
