One part of the evening is the choreography called Palindrom, visual atmospheric piece with an original musical dramaturgy, which includes songs by Nine Inch Nails or Arvo Pärta.

Catch 27 was created as a tribute to several famous musicians whom humanity would never forget. Each one of them, whether it is Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain or Jimi Hendrix, has one thing in common: their lives, which were rather similar to riding a roller coaster with a bottle of whiskey in one hand. They were able to change the world and their artistic legacy became immortal. However for this unprecedented success they paid a high price, all dying in mysterious circumstances at the age of twenty-seven. Marek Svobodník has followed up on his previous work The Devil’s Story, or the Story of Rock and Roll which has served as the basis for this newly revised version of the libretto, stage direction and choreography, giving rise to his new work, Catch 27.
In the choreography of Palindrome, the young choreographers Adam Sojka a Martin Svobodník, are trying to find the answer to the question of whether an individual in society can achieve and realise one’s potential if one goes against the mainstream. The basic idea, however, raises a number of issues: Should one even try? And if yes, how does one not undermine the structure of the mainstream, laying the foundations to build ‘something’ that will later be called ‘mainstream’ and in the end will ultimately consume the individual? How does society treat those who are going in the other direction, who are different but at the same time successful? And what is the price of being different? And in today’s world, who is different and who is normal? Are we breaking free or writing ourselves off when we become generally accepted or popular personalities? Doesn’t every attempt/endeavour often end the same as it started? The title of the work, Palindrome, from the Greek word ‘palindromos’ meaning ‘running backwards’ – stems from the notion that everything seems the same and has the same meaning when viewed from any angle...
Premiere 16th May 2014, Mahen Theatre
