Losers Cirque Company
What do we perceive when we are unconscious?
Car accident, anesthesia, coma. Any of these terrible situations can cause a state of unconsciousness. The body lies in the operating room and our lives are in other people's hands. But what are we experiencing at that moment?
Are we sitting on a stick and listening to a favorite song? Are we following a dark tunnel with light at the end? Or are we wrestling with imaginary characters?
HEROES will introduce you to the heroes of the struggle between real operation and our inner world of unconsciousness. The goal of their mission is one - survival.
The star Czech mime Radim Vizváry and the leading new circus group Losers Cirque Company will perform on the stage in the roles of heroes. The conductor of their play is Daniel Špinar, the head of drama at the National Theater. An ideal combination for a contemporary dance festival and a new circus, don't you think?
What is written about Heroes?
"The only question left is, who is the hero? In the end, probably everyone who contributes to saving lives, even the human body itself in its admirable ability to regenerate. And maybe even the reckless guy who hopes to coma or anesthesia will awaken a more sensible and grateful for his life. "
The initial situation is actually very simple. The young dude sits in a powerful car and sets it on fire without devoting himself enough to driving. What follows must be the crash of a collision, and the young man becomes a limp body, whose life the people around him struggle for.
