PONEC – Divadlo pro tanec
Price: 450 Kč / 320 Kč
EZ is a project about pain, vulnerability, negotiation, consent and care. It explores the power dynamics and the pact in place between artist and audience. What happens when a human body is consensually tied and manipulated on stage? What reactions – physical, emotional and cognitive – occur in a person manipulated, in a person who manipulates and in a person who observes the manipulation? Is there space for care? Can we laugh? Is it a ritual? Questioning binarisms such as activity/passivity, domination/submission, man/woman, pain/pleasure, artist/audience, EZ invites the generation of safe(r) spaces. EZ –which means NO in Basque– is an invitation to a YES, which is only possible when a NO is also an option.
The show will be followed by a discussion.
