How does a cow dance?
The production is inspired by illustrator Tereza Říčanová’s real cow Málina and Bára Látalová’s desire to appear in one of Tereza’s books. The cow is a huge animal, a warm, panting body, a friend. Everyday life with her became such a powerful experience for Tereza that her brush and paper were no longer enough, and gradually they started to create a theatre show about and for the cow. An original duet was born, a dialogue between animal and human, performer and audience, artist and dancer.
The performance is dedicated to Málina, who went to cow heaven in autumn 2020.
