NA VĚTVI !
Na Větvi !
Performance for two actors-acrobats and one musician.
In order to be able to say it's over we still have to be talking to each other and feel at least a little sympathy towards one another…
In order to find the truth, the real truth, it's essential to follow our temptations…
In order to be able to bare our souls, it's essential to strip naked!
"We don't know the truth, that's obvious. But suppose we do (if that's possible at all), shouldn't we feel there is something above the truth? Something above the truth, the Truth itself, indeed. And when we know this something (if that's possible at all) wouldn't we feel there is something above that again? And so on." (Norge)
Na Vetvi! is a combination of theatre and circus performance with cabaret and concert elements which takes us among "astonished" tragic as well as comic heroes – clowns full of energy and vigour - driven by obsessions and madness. They're so overflowing with such energy and verve, that it can almost knock them down and they entrap us in their passions and whirls. And we stay as "astonished" as they are!
