Performing: Sabine Seume, Miřenka Čechová
A 25-hour dance marathon
How to stop time? How to slow it down so that you can‘t hear the heartbeat? How to survive the marathon of slowness?
There are not many performances that create a real challenge to push boundaries. Momentum is one of them. A 25-hour dance marathon, featuring only two women attempting to deny experiencing time.
Butoh is an avant-garde dance direction born in Japan in the 1960s, and German performer and dancer Sabine Seume is among the chosen Europeans who studied this technique directly in Japan. And Miřenka Čechová recognizes Sabine as one of the mentors of her artistic growth. They have 24 hours of slow, extremely demanding movement ahead of them. And at the end of this journey, there is a reward is in the form of newly acquired experience. The audience can also take part in this journey. All they need to do is tune into the same rhythm as the two main protagonists of this artistic challenge.
