Contemporary dance performance by MN Dance Company .
STORY A young man leaves the room - which he has inhabited for quite some time. He takes shelter on a park bench, where he engages in a conversation with a stranger. An older office worker, a Salary-man. The setting itself marks them as outsiders, unlike others of their kind who keep to their rooms or offices. Alongside their tentative, budding friendship, stories of what brought them there unfold. The experience that affection is nourishment, that sadness is veiled by a smile and that true friendship is possible gives them courage to take their leave and turn a new leaf.
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE Michał Rynia and Nastja Bremec, founders of the MN Dance Company, based their show on the novel “Ich nannte ihn Krawatte” (“I Called Him Tie”) by an Austrian writer, Milena Michiko Flašar. It tells of contemporary existence marked by the anxiety brought on by the lack of compassion and difficult human relationships. Urban Tales is a dance performance that takes it's inspiration in nowadays’ modern society life stories. "Room with a View" is based on a life of an individual and its inner world, while "Tie" is concentrated on its social functioning. Ivan Cankar thought: "a man must be alone in order to know others”, makes difficulty to find its place in the urban society. Even in the shield of its own rooms, an individual it is faced with memories, dreams, frustrations, relationships pieces, fragments of happiness. Solitude gets over flown with loneliness, fantasy replaces the real contact. As the authors prove, random meeting in the park confronts an individual with the society, with a multitude of pressures, roles, system, authority, where at the same time it proves an opportunity to find friendships, love and living new stories. ￼
