"Wanted to explore who we are when we are NOT on social media. What is the driving force that we use to put ourselves on a pedestal. Are we just objects, like in a gallery, with a spotlight cutting off everything beyond the light?"

Music is by DJ Exhausted Modern, who is a composer as well. That combination offers immense amount of dynamics and changes and above all, it offers a rocket fuel for the 4 dancers as they move through the space in seemingly never ending group flow, yet with their characters shinning at points. 

As the music creates a sense of energy and urgency, Vaclav Havel essay provides a more reflective and thoughtful perspective. His essay on ‘live theater’ stands the grounds even today, as we are in between streaming online culture and live performances. The space is clean at first, visible yet dimmed lights give a sense of privacy. That is before the apperanece of the pedestals and their bright spotlights, which ends the privacy as the dancers are trying to use the pedestals as their own towers of Babel for their 15 minutes of fame.

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…"
