Inhale – exhale – standstill – action – reaction, they all form the connecting tissue of the dance performance Hunting Season. A seemingly meditative activity appears in the course of the performance in various scenes of gradual gradation and increasing density. Each hunt requires concentration, attention, self-denial, merging with the surroundings, listening to inner and outer impulses. All one needs for the sudden release of tension leading to the flash-like moment of hunt.
The hunting principle serves here for the mutual “collisions” between dancers, which give them the opportunity to look at themselves, at others and at the group as a whole. Stories that emerge among them reach beyond the psychology of the individual, the hunter, the group. They reveal glimpses of insanity, egotism, vulnerability and moments of beauty within us, the humanity, the world. Welcome home, in the world of tension, release, hunt and (non)sense, but also of humour, irony, competition, heart-breaking duets and solos. C´est la vie.
The project is realized with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic.
