The images from the intimate world of the poet F.G. Lorca take place in his memories and presentiments - from his earliest memories of plowing a field to his premonitions of his own murder during the civil war. The world surrounding García Lorca changes in parallel with a growing desire to love, a desire that brings for the suffocating and forbidden sexuality, pain, frustration, rebellion and understanding. Specifically for this staging the collection Sonnets of Dark Love, by F. G. Lorca, was first translated into Czech (by Marek Říha and Alexandra Berendová).
„It hit me in the way that only theater can, and even then only very rarely: the work was invisible, and I felt myself close to a reality which had up till now been beyond the horizon. It gripped me, something I do not admit, something that I did not even know I didn’t know – about a man and his suffering. And it concerned me – for love is after all not merely a private feeling, but a basic life force and a compositional principle of the world. I empathized, and was anxious about how vulnerable we are to it, inside and out… Love bears us up and cruelly threatens us at the same time… Defenseless, yes, but not pitiful, we don’t have to be. That’s how I imagine catharsis.“ Jana Pilátová, Dance zone
