“’21&counting’ is in reality, however, strongly engaged performative essay on forming manipulative pictures and perceptions of reality.”
(Review MLOKi.sk – 13.11.2019).
Premiers: 1st - 26.November 2018 Theater am Lend, Graz

"21&counting" is a performance where communication and perception of reality are the main themes. Based on an ironic pretext - delayed celebratory performance of 20th anniversary on stage in which dancer is picking in his memories and putting dance and movement as a medium to talk about the words and communication, "21&counting" humorously explores the use of political correctness and euphemisms as escape routes from reality, thus heralding contemporary problems with the acceptation of people, their surroundings and underlying lack of trust in values during human encounters.
Choreography and performance: Tomáš Danielis
Sound and music: Johann Sebastian Bach, Ľubomír Panák - DRAKH
