Farm in the Cave: Refuge
We hit the bank, we will not drown,
we will just remain mad. Just
strange. Memory, a handful of coins in a burning lake.
And naked unprotected
Become a rock, not feel.
(Anna Ondrejková, fragment)
They set off on a journey. From fear. With no guarantees. The paths of three people intersect. Connected to each other, they overcome a region of anxiety, courage, failure and compassion. They seek shelter in an indifferent world. When there is nowhere to return to, all that is left is to be awakened. The performance was inspired by interviews with a community of young people living in London who while on the run experienced a limit situation. A stage composition balanced on the border between physical theatre and concert featuring seven exceptional musical and dance performers.
