Via Negativa: 365FALLS

June 2, 2018 8:00 pm June 3, 2018 8:00 pm

Each performance is a dangerously slippery situation. Both for performers and for the audience. We are all looking for something unique, exceptional, unforgettable. This path is filled with unexpected slips, falls, and failures. This is precisely why we’re doing theatre, why we are eager to see the shows. We are risking. The one who does not risk anything does not gain nor lose.

“There is no living without falling, the performers’ actions seem to articulate in a clear and communicative gesture. Either we let go of control by ourselves, maybe the forces of the unexpected beat us, or there is somebody else counting down for us; Via Negativa does this with ease, simply asking us: How about you?” Nika Arhar, MMC RTV Slovenija, March 13, 2018

“365falls is a physical theater, in which also penetrates abundant narrative: the fall is the sum of movement and story. Therefore, the fall can be brutal or poetic, dangerous or redeeming; in any case, the factor of transience is included in its form and course – and this is also its strongest message.” Zala Dobovšek, Dnevnik, Ljubljana, 15 March 2018
