Solo 2016 is a personal and at the sametime a universal account of a dancer who, through a series of various emotional states, speaks about a world beyond the black box; about intimacy, sadness, trust and hope, beauty and terror. The dancer’s movement is the thread joining and connecting the past and the future with the present moment, in which everything changes while the body constantly traverses the space and time within and without the line of forces that violently intrude in our intimate space. The intertwinement (of styles and periods) in music functions as the body’s extension into space and dictates the change in muscle tensions that produce rhythm – as traces of movement in time. The border between the illuminating and the absorbing light is situated on the thin line between presence and fading, between the disappearing and the flowing (of life) outside and inside a closed space of (creation]). Solo 2016 is a reflection of a moment, uncatchable and at the same time timeless, which comes and is already gone; one has no strength to grabit.
After the solo performances Within(2006) and Off-Beat (2011), Solo 2016 by the Slovakian dancer, choreographer and dance pedagogue Milan Tomášik rounds off his trilogy of solo performances created in the last decade.
