An attempt at meditation through movement. On the stage is silence, but the audience hear four different soundtracks for the show, through headphones, which are prepared by four different personalities in Czech and Slovak alternative music. Minimalist dance on the silent stage and detailed listening to sounds through headphones. The tension between continuous meeting, fluid passing and diffusion of music and dance.
The closing part of the trilogy BODY AND TECHNOLOGY. The previous productions (Noise, Red Green Blue) were concerned with the interaction of a person with audiovisual apparatus on the stage. This time technology leaves the performance space clear and is moved into the audience. This is a show which lets go of the certainties of its genre.
„Silence is an experiment which may rise questions about the meaning of theatre and shifting of limits of interpersonal communication in the current world.” Iva Machačová, EX / Reflex magazine, December 2006
