Eliška Brtnická – HANG OUT
“The greatest danger in life is that we become too cautious.” (Japanese proverb)
One of today’s highest values is safety. An increasingly extensive system of rules and standards is supposed to guarantee that “nothing can happen to us” in public space. Where and at what risk is it still possible to wander outside, hang out, hang up and hang out? Do our children still go out alone? Safety has become our mantra, but don’t we miss the trembling, because of which we jump with a parachute or at least go to the circus?
Performer and acrobat Eliška Brtnická deal in her audio walk performance HANG OUT with remote and forbidden places in public space, where you maybe always wanted to climb.
Length 40 min Who is it suitable for? 0-100

About Eliška Brtnická
I graduated in non-verbal theater at HAMU in Prague where I later earned a PhD with a project on aerial choreography. I passed a one-year course in circus dramaturgy organized by the CNAC and ESAC circus schools. I tend towards performances driven by a visual concept, as well as site-specific and documentary stage productions.
