Performance about movement, words, euphemisms and that what is hidden inside.
21&COUNTING takes communication and reality perception as its main topics. The performance is based on an ironic pretense: delayed 20th anniversary of the author's presence on the scene is an opportunity for a dancer to delve into the old memories and use dance and movement as tools to discuss words and communication. 21&COUNTING is humorous exploration of the ways political correctness and euphemisms are used as means to escape reality and in return deepen contemporary issues related to personal and communal acceptance, as well as a lack of trust felt in everyday meetings with other humans.

TOMÁŠ DANIELIS dances between Brussels, Graz, Moscow and Topol'čany. He focuses on the intersection of visual/digital art and movement/dance. As an experienced dancer, he's interested in the understanding and conceptualizing performance via space. It led him to explore the light and photography as means of creative escape. For each of his projects, Danielis creates specific toolset and gestural language.
