Spitfire Theatre Company

Constellations II - artist's residency ufafabrik

The artists of the Spitfire Company worked and lived in the ufaFabrik from 1st - 14th of february 2018. Their stay ended in a work-in-progress performance, the premiere of Constellations II will be later this year in Prague.

Spitfire Company is an artistic company that includes works of physical, visual and dance theatre in the Czech Republic. The most important and characteristic aspects of the ensemble´s work are: searching of an original physical language of each particular performance, emphasis on experiencing performer´s state of being that generates very present emotions, dealing with a human´s limitation and his/her existential situation: http://www.spitfirecompany.cz/pages/read/2

Constellations II
Silhouettes of three women are sitting on the steps of a small church. Perhaps the women are drinking tea. Perhaps they are listening to the wheat cracking. The summer has reached its peak. The church bell strikes desire. Time is waiting. Time is flying around. Time is expanding. Time is collapsing. Time remembers. Time is dreaming. The three women are experiencing the magical dimension of one weekday. 

Today, we all individually face a big challenge: to stop, to calm down in these insanely accelerated, hyper-technological times and open ourselves to the dimensions of the soul. Does it sound like a cliche? Paradox. We can‘t simply forget about a natural part of humans thanks to which they become happy, about the art of sharing. In the real sense, not virtually. The art of experiencing passionate beings dancing together. Everything can be magic, imagination, reality or dream. The borders of reality are crossed not only from one perspective, but from different angles and feelings.
