Care for some Bach with a raven? Don’t take away my dignity! Ourselves? The liberating loss of self-control…who’s taking our place? Us? One gold chair and plenty of room for a lady or a twiggy doll. Encounter your stereotypes, pull yourself out of context, fill the empty space... That’s why it doesn’t exist.

Disturbance (Narušení) is a two-woman show inspired by elements of absurd drama. The performance combines contemporary circus with physical theatre and features aerial acrobatics on a suspended gold chair.
