A bestselling performance from The Left Bank Theater. Director Evžen Korniag is a prominent face of Belarusian experimental theater and his work has been influenced by legendary dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch. This distinctive visual production tackles the theme of alcoholism and loneliness, using movement, body language, rhythm and music to express what remains hidden between the lines. There is no room for words on stage, as symbolic images reflect familiar, painful and disturbing archetypes and stereotypes. Suitable for viewers aged 16 and above.
