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.
Music for the piece was composed by Owen Belton, a Canadian composer and a holder of the prestigious Dora Mavor Award, known to the Czech public for his collaboration with Crystal Pite, a renowned Canadian choreographer. Pite was introduced to the Czech audience by the intermediary of 420PEOPLE who invited her to perform at the New Stage of the National Theatre within the TANEC PRAHA festival in 2011. Costumes are be designed by a young Prague-based fashion designer tandem Anna Tušková and Radka Sirková who create under the label CHATTY. Among other things, the young designers have received the Designblok Award in 2011
