The main inspirational output for the creation of BESI is the topic of beauty. In the creative process the authors were dealing with the historical evolution of the perception of beauty and with the many questions that came from this quest: How do we understand beauty nowadays? What is truly beautiful today? What is the value of beauty in the times of relativized values?
Is the sense of beauty influencing the structure of society and human relationships? From these and similar questions, and mostly from the search for their answers the authors create a thematic mosaic – the core of the performance. A staging about beauty, but also about ugliness and the demons (Besi) inside of us that are capable of destroying it. One of the inspirations for the makers was Roman de la Rose – a French medieval poetry collection blooming with metaphors and allegorical settings, influential in creating the choreography and the visual aspect of the inscenation.
A contemporary dance journey of the renowned choreographer Milan Tomášik, his team and the international dance ensemble of Divadlo Štúdio tanca on the search for the essence of beauty. A winding road full of shortcuts, dead ends and sharp curves.
