“I live in a world without animals – I miss their rules.”

 

In this duet, two people decided to experience hunting. What will it look like? That depends on the set rules…

 

 The piece introduces a passionate game of two people who are trying to find their lost emotions and meaning to their lives. Ravine, permanent struggle but also mutual respect are all interwoven with harmony, the hunter can easily become prey.

REVIEWS:

 

★★★★★ „This astounding and inspiring piece of physical theatre truly does break the boundaries of anything that I have seen before. The ingenuity of their dance sequences is breathtaking to behold and absolutely professional.” ( BRODWAY BABY / LOUISE HEMFREY)

 

„Ravishing, disorientating, imaginative, captivating, Mah Hunt reflects the complexities of human relationships and the shadow cast by our evolutionary heritage.” (THE SKINNY / GARETH K. VILE)

 

„… tireless movement and innovation make you afraid to blink for fear of missing something wonderful.” (THE PRAGUE POST / WILL NOBLE)

 

„The resourcefulness of the duet’s movement vocabulary, the daring body configurations and the magic of intense concentration are simply breathtaking...” (MLADÁ FRONTA DNES / NINA VANGELI )

 

"Mah Hunt is an exquisitely meticulous piece of work leading up to a remarkably compact stage performance ...Mah Hunt is a production I feel like going and seeing at least once more – there’s still plenty to discover is this piece." (A2 / JANA BOHUTÍNSKÁ)

 

"The production breaks into short scenes offering tender shadow play, wild music, soothing and mysterious sounds of the jungle or a perfectly harmonised movement underlined by soft shades of an absolutely spot-on light design. All of it brings a lyrical atmosphere dramatised by repeated fights in which one is the hunter and the other is hunted whereas these roles keep switching from one to the other." (BLOG DIVADELNÍCH NOVIN / VERONIKA ŠTEFANOVÁ)

 

"The piece has a great dynamics, is full of smart ideas and does not lack humour.” “Mah Hunt is all you want from a good dance theatre piece: superb dancers, technical precision, full- on stage presence, swiftness and an interesting idea which does not let you leave the theatre "empty-handed.” (METROPOLIS / ANNA KONIGSMARKOVÁ)

 

"A playful and minimalist play sending the chills down your spine at times is truly charming and elegant. Funny enough to make children draw kids in and chaste enough not to make their parents blush." (TYDEN.CZ / VOJTĚCH VARYŠ)
