ONE STEP BEFORE THE FALL

A hypnotic wave of voice and sound by Lenka Dusilová and power dance by Markéta Vacovská converge in a single moment in the boxing ring. This new multi-genre project by the acclaimed Spitfire Company deals with the themes of fighting, exhaustion, the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease, and collapse.

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can't hit what the eyes can't see.” - Dedicated to Muhammad Ali and all the fighters around us.

"A merging of these two figures with the half-improvised sound generated by a synthesizer and Lenka Dusilová's vocals and with Markéta Vacovská's extremely physically challenging performance loaded with imaginative movement and abstract physicality that unearths the existential depths of the human body and psyche." Theatre Events of 2012 (Vladimír Hulec, Czech Theatre Times)

"A performance which well deserved the standing ovation it received from this audience." (ThreeWeeks)
