Kalivodová, Vitvar a Benešová present the pilot episode of the series about the love of work. Scandalous twists, unexpected outbursts, the pleasure of whirring drills and melancholic vocals of saws accompanied by the joyful ballet of kitchen robots.
The Screaming Fish or Ryba řvoucí group creates nonverbal performances with a strong emphasis on visual elements. The group’s most significant work to date has been what started as a student project entitled Bathrooms, exploring new approaches to theatre-in-the-home and to visual performance. The project comprised a ten-part series of performances created in the bathrooms of people’s homes from 2009 to 2013, and three theatre productions in the Czech Republic and France: Bathrooms part I: Soap (2011, Studio Řetízek, Praha), Beauty (2012, Manufacture de Chaussures, Bordeaux) and Bathrooms: part II: Beauty (2013, Alfred ve dvoře Theatre, Prague), Hairwaves (2014, 4+4 Day in Motion). Screaming Fish takes as its inspiration everyday materials, which it sees as the essential impulse for new themes and motivations. Final performances are created after a phase of pure experiment yielding scenographic materials, photographs, created objects or performance art works. The group develops the scenographic and theatrical possibilities of these materials in the contexts of both nonconventional and conventional theatre space.
