eat the floor!

A contemporary ceremony

Eat the floor - a contemporary ceremony presents the ceremonial act of the ceremony in its most beautiful splendour. 

Four selected dancers open the circle of social negotiations. The Master of Ceremonies as the highest authority, decides on progress or failure. The purpose of this ceremony - the dissolution of gravity, free fall. It's not flying up here, it's falling down. The soil must be eaten to be led into the bottomless. 

 

The ceremony, like the theatre, plays a life drama to draw conclusions about one's own reality. Play and seriousness, fiction and reality are so close to each other that one can hardly distinguish them.

 

Anybody mind? "Then may he speak now or forever hold his peace!"
