Maguy Marin (FR): Umwelt
TANEC PRAHA 2022 / Událost sezony
The New Stage
The Tanec Praha International Festival of Contemporary Dance and Movement Theatre is one of the biggest events in the Czech cultural calendar.
At the time of its first performance in 2004, Umwelt by French icon Maguy Marin was described as one of the most significant creative achievements on the world dance scene. But even today the work could not be more current! Together with nine performers, we are trapped in a chilling game called life during seemingly everyday activities. In the reflection of dozens of ruthless mirrors, we watch with concern the "Umwelt" – the world around us – and our endless, exhausting struggle to live in it… and to survive.
