Man, Woman, Obsession. This performance explores the limits of the relationship between a man and woman, namely the need to control, succumb, transform, resist, approach, own, share, be alone, be together … The initial inspiration was a quotation from Plato. The Antique philosopher claimed that human being was originally complete, i.e. with two heads and four legs, before being split apart by Zeus as a punishment. Since then the two halves have helplessly sought one another – the male and female of that being – to be able to merge into the unity of happiness.

The first independent performance of Decalages was created under the direction of Irina Andreeva – the director, performer and the founder member of Teatr Novogo Fronta, a physical theatre group. The performance features brand new and original techniques and approaches, a combination of acrobatics with drama, dance and theatre of objects.
First staging: 11. 3. 2007
