Who are you if nobody is watching? And who are you if you are being watched?
Standing high up on an exhibition stand, you know that your body and face are being observed from all angles, your voice assessed by a special filter. Yet, no one can hear you over the steady beat of electronic music. There is no warning of free fall from the stand. Only the words “EVER!” flash.
If it could, what would the exhibition stand have told us?

The long-standing cooperation of choreographer Václav Kuneš with dramaturge Lucie Němečková, set designer Lucie Škandíková, costumes designer Olo Křížová and light designer Jan Mlčoch has once again proven its worth and resulted in the production EVER! The audience is brought into an intimate place devoid of time and space...
The only limits seem to be inclined planes, parallel shadows, and the precise language of contemporary dance performed by 420PEOPLE dancers.The performance is lightly spiced up with sarcasm and sophisticated playfulness.
“EVER is not a story, it is a moment and a place captured by dance.”
"The dance texture of Ever makes an extremely soft impression and the soft treads and falls of feet multiply the effect. Kuneš created a series of abstract images concretized by dancers’ bodies. And who would long for absolute understanding and unambiguous answer to the question that touches upon the plot of the performance (Who Are We When Nobody Is Watching?) when Ever offers so many magical moments…"
