DOT 504

Collective Loss of Memory

Tom – the Jew, highly adaptable Nathan, Dano – the helper, pure and original Knut and the boss Jun Wan – fifty per cent better better than any other. With this group of five very funny guys we will dive into the powerful social phenomenon of the great pleasure human beings: take in killing and participating in violence. The pleasure of killing gives the perpetrator a strange experience of absolute power and freedom… But for the victims it is hell itself. And the random observers of violent scenes? They do nothing; suffering from collective loss of memory. They just observe.

The successful co-operation of DOT504 and RootLessRoot tandem Jozef & Linda is based on their former internationally successful projects. Holdin’ Fast received the Total Theatre Award nomination for the Best Young Company at the Fringe Festival Edinburgh in 2008 and launched a series of international success and recognition for authors and for DOT504 Dance Company as well. Following project 100 Wounded Tears was awarded with The Herald Angels Award one-year later (in 2009) at the Fringe Festival Edinburgh. Blurring of boundaries between theater and dance is one of the main characteristics of the work of DOT504 and Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea.

Collective Loss of Memory was awarded as the Dance Piece of the Year at the Czech Dance Platform 2015 Festival together with the Audience Award of the same festival.
