They set out on a journey. Out of fear. With no guarantees. The paths of three runaways intersect. Bound to one another, they navigate a terrain of anxiety, courage, failure and compassion, seeking refuge in an indifferent world. At the point of no return, all that remains is awakening. 

Abstract

We hit the bank, we will not drown,
we will just remain insane. Just
strange. Memory, a handful of coins in a burning lake.
And naked unprotected
desire.
Become a rock, not feel.

(Anna Ondrejková, fragment) 

The performance was inspired by interviews with a community of
young people living in London who while on the run found themselves in limit situations. A stage composition balancing on the border between physical theatre and concert features seven exceptional musical and dance performers.
 
The performance is dedicated to our friends from Tibet.

For Promoters

Farm in the Cave’s standard space requirements for performances are as follows: a space with good acoustics which can also be completely silent during performances; typically we use a black box or site-specific space with minimal dimensions of 10 x 10 meters, with a height of 6 meters; at least 6 months before the performance our technical team of 2-4 persons must make a preparatory visit.

The maximum number of audience members at individual performances varies, but is usually no more than 450.

The number of performers per performance varies between 5 and 13, and the technical – production staff is between 4 and 6 people.

The minimum number of performances presented in one place is 2.

The company can play 2 performances per day are available on request – the latest start time is 21:00 local time.

The length of preparation and adaptation depends on the specific performance and local conditions, with a minimum of 1-2 days necessary prior to the day of the first production.

Financial requirements are available upon request at info@farminthecave.com or barbara.tumova@seznam.cz

The organizers pay for: fees; costs of shipping scenography; personnel transport; local transportation to the performance location; housing; per-diems; costs connected with preparatory technical visit. The organizer agrees to pay for costs of equipment rental if the space to be used does not have the equipment necessary.
