DOT504 Dance Company

„With 5 exceptional performers we will dwell into theme of incredibly powerful social phenomena. And that is the story of one of the greatest pleasures of human being-killing and participation in violence. We will examine this topic of everyday experience through history of art practice and especially through it appearance in fine arts and cultural criticism.

It will be a study of provocation that does not touch the obvious, but examine subtle aspects of human behavioral evolution and what kind of evolutionary pressures we passed and passing through in today’s unprecedented lifestyle oriented only towards selfish momentary pleasures.“
