ProFitArt – a production platform based in Prague, which focuses on independent nonverbal, physical theater and contemporary dance – is happy to introduce a devised visual performance ‘Woman Skin Song Bone’ of the newly established international collective NECESÉR. The premiere will take place on September, 16th at Palác Akropolis, Prague .
Visual performance about fragments of femininity, confronting puppets, textile art, video and singing:
tracing the images before words, voices before songs, movements before dance and touch before meeting.
Unearthing and burying the stories in the field where our ancestress planted messages amongst the potatoes, for those who would come after. Death accompanies us with our every step, but still our lives dig the furrows in the earth, into souls and to memories. With what do we nurture the web connecting us all to the cycle of life and death? Does this web support us or tie us down? Our ancestresses, dried up by the end less work in the field, are stretching out over the web. Maybe they are still here to carry us beyond dream and memory.
The performance’s language is based around visuality, on images lured out by sound. Song creates and moves stage images, primitive puppets weave the eternal field of ancestors and modern technologies bring other layers of time to the surface. The group of women of various artistic and cultural background (Finnish, Swedish-Finnish and Australian, Polish, Slovak and Czech) are forming the performance’s shape and subject out of improvisations and shared personal stories, visions, dreams and songs.
