Ephemera (2021)
directed by: Viliam Dočolomanský, Jiří Matoušek
choreography by: Viliam Dočolomanský

Originally, the project Ephemera was going to be a live performance designed in a covid-safe way with required distance between viewers and performers. The audience was supposed to watch it from the circulating cabins of the paternoster lift in the beautiful historic Lucerna Palace in Prague and this way experience parallel events happening across six floors. At the last moment, due to new covid-related restrictions we couldn’t perform the show live. Within a few days, we adapted the concept of the live show and shot the project as a film. Ephemera is a set of fleeting intimate moments captured in the form of powerful emotional movements. The protagonists, preoccupied with their own uncertain and volatile stories, don’t notice the others just next to them. The scenes evoke everyday situations in a melancholic setting, at the edge between reality and strangeness.
