The dance staging is inspired by the theme of climate, especially in its natural behaviour during climate change, which may have a binding effect on our existence at the present time.

For the artistic representation of this theme, Jiří Pokorný was loosely inspired by the idea that the planet Earth’s biosphere represents the symbol of eternal motion. Its influences, principles and constant transformations are the recurring cycle of life in the time-space in which all living things are born and lost. In this self-regulating process, we find ourselves as part of one superorganism.

The World of Daisies represents space where life on Earth is maintained in the right ratio between black and white, that is between a black and a white daisy. The black daisy receives light and transforms it into the warmth that warms us. The white daisy reflects light and causes the opposite effect. In a similar way, our body acts as a tool that responds largely to the outside, listening closely to its basic functions and movement expression to become part of a complex organism that adapts the conditions for its indisputable self-existence.

“With every breath, we confirm the bond with the environment that surrounds us. We transform it, blend with it. The movement of our body breaks the air, reflects it, warms it up, and we breathe it in and out. By our existence, we are involved in the constant movement and transformation of the material world.”

In his new choreographic work, Lukáš Timulák deals with elements that are in constant interdependence and exchange and are constantly blending. Nature, human beings and their living space. How do we shape our environment and how does it shape us? What do we absorb from it and how does it absorb us? The core of Lukáš Timulák’s choreography is a man as a part of a permanent process of change, in constant movement and adaptation.
