About the shows
A global food corporation infiltrated a spy into a group of young activists, who wanted to uncover the multinational's hidden criminal practices. What followed was a series of still-unsolved murders of several members of rebelling workers’ unions in third world countries. Who is who in this spy game, which is no longer a game? How do we act under constant surveillance in a situation where no one is to be trusted?
Whistleblowers is a hypnotic and disturbing probe “behind the scenes” of the corporate world. It is based on real events that came to a scandalous judicial conclusion in Switzerland in 2013.
Fragments of an absurd mother-daughter relationship appear in a kaleidoscope of situations from other lives lived without recognizing their sense and direction, between fun and powerlessness, narcissism and fear of death. The present alternates with the past, and rejection with the desire for closeness. Time passes, the elevator is rising, and the party has to end sometime. We’ve grown old. Does it surprise us?
The performance is based on a research carried out in a community of elderly people. Performers Hana Varadzinová and Eliška Vavříková created this work together with non-actor seniors, and perform in it alongside them. At least within the scope of the project, they thus created a model of coexistence without discrimination of the elderly that is all too common in today’s society.
They set off on a journey. From fear. With no guarantees. The paths of three people 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.
The performance was inspired by interviews with a community of young refugees living in London who found themselves in limit situations while on the run. This stage composition, balancing on the border between physical theatre and a concert, features seven exceptional music and dance performers.
