REQUIEM FOR INFINITY 

Dance story about touching the issues which are situated between the start and end of life, maybe even beyond. Choreography which does not focus on the pure attractiveness of movement but attempts to tell the story of a particular man’s destiny within the framework of Dvořák’s Requiem’s spiritual space – destiny of a man who is struggling throughout the time given to him... A requiem is, by definition, a “mass for the deceased”. However, in our rendition, it is the expression of faith and our conviction that life energy can’t just simply disappear, that it is transformed and passed further on – not unlike dance which also has infinitely many forms…

“I come from infinity… And I go to the remote eternity.
There will always be a tomorrow. Even today was tomorrow some time ago.” 
(Johannes Mario Simmel)
