Karen Foss Quiet Works & ME-SA: Man shape Revised

What is perceived as male, masculine, manliness? Playing many-facetted into the wonderment of what a MAN can be, the project is a balancing act between acts and perceptions. Created originally in 2011 as a solo for male dancer Daniel Racek, this work expands in 2019 into a double solo danced by a male and a female dancer.

What are we looking at, how do we perceive the qualities of a man, a woman, the mixt and inbetween?

Karen Foss, a Norwegian based dance-artist is wanting for people being left in peace and given respect for their personal preferences and inclinations. (Exempt use of violence.) The equalized equilibrium could be free of gender and full of humanity..?

The dance work she is interested in – is the flow of human bodies moving – unsexed, ungendered – just the wonders of the human. Being human.

A lucid fluidity found in dance and its choreographic shapes play a large part in the artistic focus. Like Mind, like Body and with Fire of the Heart.

tri4 and Milan Tomášik: Repast

At the beginning of a theatrical-dance performance, created in collaboration between director Jakub Mudrák and choreographer Milan Tomášik, stands the word repast.  The seemingly archaic word speaks of spiritual repast in contrast to the natural,  necessary nourishment. Author’s testimony about our everyday life, coexistence, constant movement of thoughts and unpredictable emotions.
