You don't solve anything, love yourself and most importantly, don't look for anything.
Martin's performance is about the body. To our body - maybe beautiful, maybe ugly. The dancers will introduce him to you to the limit. The dummy becomes the counterweight to the limits of the human body on the stage. Although it has perfect proportions, despite its ideal 90-60-90 it will remain just a cool piece of plastic without a soul.
The SOMA performance will draw your attention to how we slowly transform into robots and forget what makes us human. But it is up to you whether you will look for a hidden message in the movements of Martin, dancers and involved Ostrava performers, or you will just look and enjoy the possibilities of the human body.
What do they write about Soma?
"Something reminiscent of a centaur without a human torso is approaching the scene about halfway through. It's just the legs and the front ones are plastic, torn from some dummies. Talaga thus characteristically points to a society that has literally put its head down somewhere and is unable to think about the things that its body does. "
