The Lion’s Den started as an performative research on media, political populism and their manipulative powers. Two performers are becoming the embodiment of physical and visual images inspired by the media space. In their unceasing duet, together with the audience, they fall into a symbolic lion’s den, opening an abyss of uncertainty.

In their new piece, Sabina Bočková and Johana Pocková balance on the borders between entertainment and perversity. They travel from manipulating the audience to self manipulation, oscillating between the roles of leaders and victims. With unusual lightness and an openness of meaning, they are passing through the known figures common as social/cultural references and doing so space for interpretation, critical thinking and the audience’s own positioning is created. The Lion’s Den is an electrifying performance with strong emotional charge and high intensity. In combination with vivid live music, the created atmospheres are used and sometimes abused for powerful emotional pressure.
