|Performance||1. We fall in and out of life. As we do fall in and out of the kiss. From the first moment when we are gently kissed into life until our first experience with the kiss and later the relationships with it, we cannot escape the turbulence, fierceness, playfulness and tenderness of its power. We do not know where it comes from nor where will it take us. It always stays in mystery. The piece is playful take on what comes or might come with the kiss. Excited, overwhelmed, and maybe even feeling foolish by believing there is such a thing as a kiss.
2. A dance production of Hana Polanská Turečková exploring the motif of space-time continuum as a completely natural, self-evident factor; nothing appears to be more certain than the irreversible, unrepeatable sequence of events in nature and history referring to the theory of relativity and philosophical questions related to our past, depths of space, the origin of life and certainty of death.
