Dance performance "Tempo"

"Tempo" is a dance performance that combines movement, music and video. The theme of the production is the time: tempo, rhythms, moving forward, growth, acceleration, arriving, being.

The tempo in and around us, in nature and in the city, a human being in the middle of one's everyday activities, at special moments, moving in time, falling behind, searching for one's own pace, the pace of others, losing it and finding it again. Time is always the same and always so different. Sometimes you're in a hurry, sometimes there is time. Sometimes it's exciting, sometimes awfully boring. Sometimes it's meaningful to be in a hurry, sometimes it's just failing. Sometimes you want to stay at heels, sometimes to shake others off, sometimes you want to fall behind and wander calmly at your own pace, with your music, your cognition, your own vision of the world and your surroundings. What are the moments that could last longer? What are the moments that are remembered? Life cycle and growth rings.

Creators of "Tempo" are interested in different rhythms of the city and nature, as well as rhythms, which are the meeting and fusion points of different environments.
