Performance synopsis

‘S!LENT’ is a symbolic journey through the life of a woman immersed in Slavic cultural inspiration. The performance is a poetic reflection on femininity and its attributes, on the search for inner wisdom and maturity, as well as a confrontation with the passage of time and the fear of aging and death. Traditional and contemporary motifs intertwine playfully. Dance, texts, singing and the playing of instruments create dance theatre set in an imaginary, fairytale-like world.
