film THROUGH GLASS
The dance film THROUGH GLASS, directed by Marek Partyš and choreographed by Sylva Šafková, combines contemporary dance and a visual story that describes the image of distorted reality: “Reflections, angles of view, distorted reality ... but if you hold it against a mirror, the letters will go again in the right direction."
The idea for short dance film ORĪGĪ came from the title of an EU project: CLASH! When classic & contemporary dance collide & new forms emerge. Unexpected encounter of three dancers.

Is performance on stage more a form of psychotherapy or rather copy-pasting our own ideas? It is on the ground plan of stand-up comedy that he now builds his new piece, one to oscillate between humour and poignant questions that go underneath the skin of those who stand on stage and try to make the audience laugh.
