This piece of dance theatre with the subheading “Solo for Three” is a ravishing performance inspired by the lives and songs of three singer-poets of the 1960s and 1970s – Jacques Brel, Vladimir Vysotsky and Karel Kryl. Three singing poets, three great artists, three human beings. Three different cultures, personalities, fates. Although using different languages, musical utterances and poetry of texts, there is much more that unites them than divides them. Today, classics who did not want to become classics, as if speaking a similar language. Using words that spring from the depths of the bosom and are as truthful as only the truth can be. Words relentlessly rebelling against violence, philistinism and betrayal, assiduously accentuating feeling, tenderness and love. Three uncompromising fighters for humanity, with a capital “H”.
