"Special Mention" by the Jury and "Best Dancer of the Year" at the 2019 Czech Dance Platform

A heron falling to pieces, trussed up in its feathers and sitting on sticks. A snake eagle swirling in large, paced circles before it melts. That is their wild side.

Nothing defines human beings better than their disposition to accomplish absurd acts in order to obtain results that are just as improbable. In a world where reason is a nice façade, the bursting in of non-sense brings us to face our relationship with normalcy and allows us to open up to unbeaten paths. Somewhere between burn out and brown out, two women, exposed to each other like a palindrome in a distorting mirror, lose their direction and rekindle with their wild animal.
