CZECH ENCORES / Linda Kapetanea & Jozef Fru─Źek

New Theatre
Saturday 23 April, 2016 | 7pm–7:50pm

Collective Loss of Memory

Place five men in a confined space, where masculinity is championed and a virulent type of group phenomena can take hold, in this case with a brutal outcome. The influences on each other when in a group can have a profound and irrational effect on a human’s thinking. A powerful, humorous and shocking show, dripping in sweat, that questions our sense of individuality.

Double award winners at last year’s Czech Dance Platform, the show is directed and choreographed by Jozef Fruček & Linda Kapetanea of the company Rootless Root.

Blurring of boundaries between theater and dance is one of the main characteristics of the work of DOT504 and Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea.
