Soňa Ferienčíková, Mária Júdová, Alexandra Timpau: EVERYWHEN

EVERYWHEN orbits around two sides of life - the personal and the political. An often caring, gentle and well-meaning personal life is contrasted here with the reality of the social individual, who can often be sinister, vengeful and hateful. But how can we be critical to our own world views when they are created by those closest to us?

A woman as loving mother who also promotes murder and slavery; a loving couple involved in the propaganda of a perverse ideology; kids that give a fascist salute as if in play. Something is wrong in these scenes. Images of everyday families, mums and dads with their children, tiny groups of people, close to each other, face to face with the threat of history repeating itself.

Our memories often surface suddenly, changed, idealized, and sometimes they even erase themselves spontaneously. By leaving out key events and rewriting history a barrier is built between the new generation and older people, and this is makes it too easy for history to repeat itself. Is it even possible to stop history from repeating itself when ideology is written into the body like DNA? An intimate situation in a frightfully familiar context.

This international collective whirls together new music, movement and imagery in an intermedial performance on history's endless rotation. The audience may feel dizzy with the fusion of all these genres.
