Tomáš Janypka/Sabina Bočková
song lines: expedition 97/18
For the last time in Studio Alta, Tomáš Janypka and Sabina Bočková will present the author’s performance of song lines: Expedition 97/18, which deals with the absence and loss of a close person.
In the depth of the choreographic work, there is the search for the answer, how can such a traumatizing experience influence our body, even though the loss itself is hidden inside us and invisible. This search creates an imaginary map of the space, where the distance from the experience is the main measuring scale. It is a navigation for the search, where emotions become a return to the lost spaces, where words and bodies can be very close and incredibly distant at the same time.
Despite the appearance of the difficulty of this topic, this performance is more of a celebration of our darker places.
