Dance études to social grotesque​​​​​​​
Society as machinery. It revolves for ever but the artist never rests. Mechanisms and patterns, mutual power impulses and learnt reflexes. We start off from a broad spectrum of systems of relations to arrive at the smallest details. Systems of power, powerful small trifles. Realist situations are disturbed by absurd happenings and they begin to turn back the cog-wheels. Characters stuck in roles play their own lives, albeit narrowed down to the smallest space: who is left alone with whom?
The performance presents everyday situations with the means of dance and grotesque. Constant rearrangement keeps the stories in motion. An unreal community locked in itself can be seen, where anything can happen. It is familiar and yet not. 

Now, it is the same as ever.
It’s high time that.
