Sunday Neurosis

Jiří Pokorný & Radim Vizváry

This project resulted from the original encounter of dancer Jiří Pokorný and mime Radim Vizváry. The goal of their collaboration was to find shared aspects of the different theatrical styles they represent – contemporary dance and modern pantomime. The artists endeavored to influence one another and combine both styles into a form that brings more dance to pantomime and enriches dance with acting. As a source of inspiration for the piece they chose neurosis, one of the main causes and manifestations of personality disorders that leads individuals to fail in society and disrupts basic interpersonal communication. In the performance, the artists examine the causes, manifestations and somatic symptoms of mental disease, characterized primarily by mental imbalance causing psychological stress, mental or emotional distress. Both performers are united in their existential intimacy with the audience and effort to approach the topic with a healthy dose of irony.
