Theater: Light in Darkness

(This article expired 14.02.2013.)

Show has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. March 8-25 - Acclaimed actress Miřenka Čechová and her company Tantehorse Physical Theater Company of the Czech Republic will present Light in Darkness at Synetic Theater.

Light in the Darkness is comprised of a two-part piece – On the Dark Road: The Death of Marquis de Sade and Light in the Darkness: Dante – that fuses the disciplines of physical theater, mime, and modern dance.

The first part, On the Dark Road, is composed of dreams and fantasies and invites the audience to a fictional picture gallery of sins in which various images of death appear and disappear. One fantastic image emerges and develops into another, demanding the viewer’s individual imagination and experience.

Light in the Darkness combines surreal and decadent poetry with elements of physical theater and modern dance. Hell is not in others: hell exists within us – just as we hold within us the promise of heaven.
