Nové sady 4 –⁠ Pasi Mäkelä: Black Piece

Black Piece presents an performative link between cosmic periphery and homelessness in urban periphery and quantum physics crash with deliberate and non deliberate refuge from the society. Black piece urges to paganism and tries to scratch the darker layers under the known civilization. Urban Buto dance revisited.

Black Piece was created in co-production with Dům umění města Brna.
