BIOLOGY OF FREEDOM. THE STORY OF THE EEL

It is a story about nature and the natural in us. On originality. About the fact that we are all together and connected in a single ecosystem - algae, fish, water, land, insects, birds, animals, and people. We all have one breath and one breath in common.

Each and everuone of us are born responsible for our typical home, the world, and we share responsibility for plastic mountains, dead oceans, and seas, river dams, sound and light pollution, endangered species of fish, birds, and animals.

The show is based on the story of a European eel population that has almost disappeared from the world's fish populations - full of mysteries, the unknown, and humanized romance. Freedoms embedded in biological determinism. The world of water around us - invisible but quietly present. The show moves the viewer, making the body feel the story, the collective inhale, and exhale, the universal rhythm. The bodily experience is the most significant, memorable experience - it connects a person with it's wild nature. The joy and sense of movement bring us closer to the natural origin. The move is biological and free, and it has a lot of coincidences, improvisations, it is present.

The task of the show is to open a new culture of thinking: 

to invite to return to their natural origin, to feel ourselves as a part of natural and biological processes, to be attentive to the place where we live, and to those who live side by side. Call not to be indifferent to the world's ecological processes. Understand how closely we are all connected in one ecosystem.  At the end of the show, the audience is welcome to a conversation.
