Performance deals with the symbol of the labyrinth known from Greek mythology. Labyrinth as a life full of obstacles and decisions. We can say that the Minotaurs in the labyrinth do not exist; but everyday monsters that we have to cope with and with whom we have to fight surely do: doubts, fears, worries, regrets and uncertainties. We learn to fight them with our most powerful weapons: intelligence, memory, will, heart. Every time we think we found the exit we bump into new obstacles. Trapped between frightening walls with no way out.
Performance in collaboration with SNG Nova Gorica and founded by the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia

which is very characteristic for Michal Rynia and Nastja Bremec Rynia in its individually soft flow, results in a multitude of unusually beautiful pictures in harmony with their company, which on the one hand stimulate the imagination and on the other hand leave any kind of freedom of interpretation.
Searching, struggling, the always uncertain, successful or unsuccessful use of mind and imagination, forms a poetic bowl that the dancers fill and enrich with their movements subtly and precisely: edges and corners flash frighteningly, surprisingly harmonious.

A complex maze of motion. Is the world a deliberately created labyrinth or perhaps only chaos for which there is no plan?
