SFIDA FURIOSO

PIER PAOLO PASOLINI

Martin Dvořák - Edgar Omar Rojas Ruiz: SFIDA FURIOSO / Who is Me? (ProART Creation 2013)

Choreography and dance: Martin Dvořák

Music and composition: Edgar Omar Rojas Ruiz

Two independent artists – a dancer, choreographer and a composer, musician – meet on one stage with a topic of Piere Paolo Pasolini, his life and art. Italian writer, poet, screenwriter, director and rebel paid the highest price for his uncompromising life philosophy. His work, however, timelessly inspires and challenges to more art reflections, thoughts and contemplating about the sense of art work, sources of inspiration, doubts of the author, internal power to overcome them and the need to share something. “Furious resistance” is about the attempt of an individual to be one-self.

"To be poets, we would need a lot of time, hours and hours of solitude." Pier Paolo Pasolini

... Pasolini's poetic portrait in virtuos motion pictures of top-class dancer Martin Dvorak and guitarist Omar Rojas Ruiz from Mexico. (KRONEN ZEITUNG, 14. 7. 2013)

Martin Dvořák - Irene Bauer: MILADA

Choreography: Martin Dvořák

Music: Franz Schubert

Performance: Irene Bauer

Milada is inspired by a court proceeding followed by a good bye letter authored by the most famous victim of the judicial murder during the communist political processes in the 50's of the past century who was convicted guilty for fabricated conspiracy and treason – Milada Horáková. She was the only woman executed during these processes. Thanks to her intransigence during her court hearing she became a symbol of the resistance against the totality of the governing communist party. The motional and expressional register reflects the everlasting and emotional part of human being who is fully aware of her innocence yet is strong enough to testify to her disadvantage. The inevitable death she accepts with serenity, peace and forgiveness. The choreographic process explores the emotional influence on movements, muscular tension, space usage, dynamics, etc.

"I fall, I fall, I lost this fight, I'm going honestly. I love this country, I love the people, build his welfare. I'm leaving without hatred towards you. I wish you, I wish you..." Milada Horáková

Nir Ben Gal - ProART Company (CZ): JAN

Choreography: Nir Ben Gal

Music: Philip Glass

Dance: Martin Dvořák, Irene Bauer, Alena Pajasová

Our history is full of violence and resistance to oppression. Is violence the only way to fight the repression? Is it possible to look for a different way? A lot of times the violence, oppression and resistance can be found in my face, in my body, my intent and not as an external factor like in a cruel regime or occupying power. With dance, lets try to find ways to love without resistance. Move without suppression. This piece is dedicated to the memory of Jan Palach.

"People must fight against the evil they feel equal to at that moment." Jan Palach
