Performance of  human and object

Mind initially light, preoccupied with game play.

The perfect interplay delights the human eye.

 We are blinded by the desire to preserve everything, by the power of the will to maintain.

However by clinging the weakness becomes strong and the sense becomes hard.

 Clinging attracts tension.

Together they flood the mind and produce immobility.

 In moments of weakness shadows come to the surface

to which a busy man did not pay enough attention.

 Fragile security, is it possible to return to you?

 I recognize that leaning on matter I fight my own desire.

 The fall is the beginning of the journey.

Perfect shape, a symbol of order and precision. Pleasing to the eye without any irregularities and deviations. Symbol of human construct that gives us a feeling of security through it’s clarity. But can we rely on that? When do the things we have created stop being our helpers? Where is the border?  It is becoming more and more complicated to find a difference between the need and addiction…

Project Cube is dance creation based on interdisciplinary collaboration of four people coming from diverse backgrounds such as dance, sculpture, design, light design and music. 

In a symbolic, visual and physical manner we talk about fragile borders between human needs and addiction, desire and purposefulness. We are interested in the relation between the space of human mind, emotion and physical body. We speculate about the age of technical development and its consequences for human beings that crave for control, security, and recognition.

Our performance had a non public premiere in Prague at Studio ALTA 26. 4. 2021 and first live premier at gallery Pragovka 18. 9. 2021. 

This project was realised with financial support of Studio ALTA and the Ministry of Culture of Czech Republic. 

● In 2021, all events at ALTA are free! ●

During the pandemic, we did not have the opportunity to meet you in person and open ALTA to the general public. Now that we can do it, we want to be even closer to you. We decided that we would not collect any entrance fees for our programs in 2021, so that really everyone could come. Culture to all!
