HAVE KNOWN | Butoh-Kitsch Theater
one year apart, the two Russian artists and founders of Poema
Theatre, Valentin Tszin and Evgenia Chetvertkova, are meeting
again to invent a completely new performance. Invited to help
realise this new project, composer Emil Lewandowski from
London, is honoured to join them as well.
With "I have known", they are constructing a new reality, full
of absurd, grotesque and sometimes humorous conventions. This
performance is about the union of opposites: old memories
generating new fantasies, something forgotten becomes
something remembered. Like travelers that don’t have a
shelter, they are ready to invent their own home on a journey
into the unknown. This performance is a dialogue between
motion and inertia, the body
and the soul, the up and the down, sanity and madness, music
Performance duration: 54 min (no break)
