About the performance

Silver Blue is a second dance performance by Milan Tomášik & Co. It is a continuation of a successful group performance The Hunting Season (2014), where we are facing the research of rhythm, which becomes the consequence of the body tension once again. The dancer’s body are expressive, virtuosic and will bring us to the new, unexpected result. In a world that is increasingly dominated by mistrust, fear and hopelessness, the performers create a critical antithesis of true happiness.

SANJA PETROVSKI, PLESNA SCENA, 02. 02. 2016: http://plesnascena.hr/index.php?p=article&id=1874

“Tomášik has managed to create a complete, compact performance which is being developed so that the situation that emerged from the previous, stacked and harmoniously intertwined with occasional shocking, uncomfortable interruptions. The attention of his work is focused on rhythm, its distortions and then re-establish the order.” “Tomášik je uspio stvoriti cjelovitu, kompaktnu predstavu koja se razvija tako da se situacije koje izranjaju iz prethodne, slažu jedna na drugu i skladno prepliću s povremenim šokantnim, nelagodnim prekidima.” 

“All the elements of the show are organically intertwined and skillfully designed. From each scene of the performance we get the precision, commitment and a great knowledge.” “Svi elementi predstave organski su isprepleteni i znalački osmišljeni. Preciznost, posvećenost i ogromno znanje izviru iz svakog segmenta ovog scenskog djela.”

“Oblivion erases the past, on the stage is framed already a new scenic flow when each individual is presented in their dance monologue, when flying one after the another, when Spela again playfully and humorously shines on stage with her source of movement structures, shining eyes and huge smile, she is her own and is unique, while Milan is structuring running steps, jumps and hops; these are the moments when you shout hurray, finally dance (and we did not miss shouts at the end of the show on 29 December).” “Pozaba izbriše minulo, na odru pa se snuje že novi scenski tok, ko se vsak posamično predstavi v svojem plesnem monologu, ko letijo in kot po tekočem traku priletijo eden za drugim, ko Špela znova igrivo in hudomušno obsije oder s svoji izvirom gibalnih struktur, sijočih oči in prešernega nasmeha, je svoja in je enkratna, medtem pa Milan strukturira bežeče korake, skoke in poskoke; vse to so trenutki, ko bi kar vzkliknil: hura, končno ples (in vzklikov ni manjkalo ob koncu predstave 29. decembra).”
