About performance


The unique creative project that combines elements of classical drama and modern dance brings to the stage a dramatic story inspired by real events.

The uniqueness of this project lies primarily in a combination of dance and dramatic arts, in another attempt to find the right form of total theatre, in connection with the music of Maurice Ravel: Bolero.

Bolero is the final culmination, the final monologue of the mother begging for forgiveness. However, the performance will also include modern and original variations on Ravel s Bolero, being genre and dramatically adapted to the story itself. They have been composed by Michael Novinski -- the famous composer of scenic music.  


The main character will be stared by Anna Javorková.
