For the past three years, Milan Tomášik’s interest lies within a movement practice and choreographic research – a scale of muscle tension. Each specific tension, or release determines until certain extend an emotion, therefore general atmosphere. The entanglement of a specific tension in a rhythmical and physically articulated manner with emotions creates contrasting, but related scenes. Here, in a new dance piece for MoDem collective, Milan focuses on a rhythmical dance composition in relationship with emotional states that creates sometimes beautiful, another time obscure landscapes.
Commissioned work for the MoDem collective, a triple bill evening with Maud de la Purification, Milan Tomášik and Roberto Zappala.
