We are entering a situation already underway. Are we at the beginning or the end? Last tremors, dying fire… elemental scourge or ecstatic state? A state of total happiness or immeasurable suffering?
Or just a fatigue from the dreary nature of our everyday life?
You need to rest. Stay in place for a while.
Where a fire was burning just a moment ago, there is peace now. Bodies feel exhausted, time has slowed down.
Rest at last. But how long can one go on?
Living organisms perceive time differently. Humans strive to be as fast and productive as possible,
But they value consistency and permanence. The root system from which we grow forms the foundation of our existence. We support each other and form communities. And while we search for a path, our malleable bodies get stronger, becoming stable supports.
The performance Tremula features artist Eliška Brtnická and dancer Martina Hajdyla who meet on stage for the first time. With director Jana Stárková, they search for intersections of their artistic approaches manifested in pure physicality, further develop in collaboration with music composer Ian Mikyska and visual artist Pavel Havrda.

 “… On the aspen the leaves wither,

let it wither, fall down.

If I wither like that

When I wither, shall I fall down?”

Parent-Friendly Culture
For the performance on 08.05.2024 / 18:00 /we offer free babysitting (childcare) as part of our accessibility program. It’s important to us to have people with diverse life experiences in the audience, and we know that access to live culture is often complicated for parents of young children. In the frame of Parent-Friendly Culture program, we strive to break down, at least in part, the complex barriers we have in our society, allowing parents an uninterrupted theatrical experience and direct participation in cultural events.
If you are interested in the childcare program, please fill out the simple entry form (it requires the purchase of a ticket for the performance).
