The existential abstract ballet as a metaphor of never experienced secret of life and world. The choreography is inspired by the painting of Vladimír Houdek „Black mirror“ and is structured into three dance parts: Law path – Coalescence – Transcendence. The cooperation of Hana Polanská Turečková and Vladimír Houdek could be described as „stage or film collage of dance and paintwork seeking a definition of a relationship between the body language and the visual portrayal” and is strongly inspired by modernism.

The performance was created as a part of celebration of the Year of Czech Music 2014.
