Face the contemporary chaos and awaken your more sensitive self.
Family show: suitable for adults and children 8+ years
Duration: 60 minutes without intermission
Place: Rasposo marquee, Hořejší nábřeží
A metaphorical and revolted unveiling, around the image of the white clown as a derisory saviour of contemporary chaos. In the darkness of the ring, the acrobatic imbalances or the wild grace of knife throwing resonate with a few notes of barrel organ, sad and joyful, like a circus prayer.
„An Oration is a prayer, a final word. Through this show, I seek to awaken an awareness to rekindle our intellectual and poetic lights as well as our deep sensibilities. To light up new ones, more spiritual, more visceral, more authentic, towards which we can rise, and that we can follow. The quest for a concrete truth, which is found in the concreteness of bodies. With the nervous wave that provokes the circus gesture, my artistic act has for ambition to be lived physically by the spectator, and questions something mystical or supernatural, what the circus and death put in presence together.“
