Zdenka Brungot Svíteková and Katarína Brestovanská will collaborate together for the first time in a creative process to uncover and elaborate the sequences of the Japanese tea ceremony, working with its abstraction and gradually creating a story that never happened.
The Tea Ceremony is a reminiscence of the time when Katarína Brestovanská received a Bunkamura Scholarship to study No Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts Shiga, Japan, where she lived and worked for two years. She returns in her memories from almost a quarter of a century ago to absurd situations and cultural differences, the contrasts of which will form the narrative of the dance-performative essay. Together with Zden Brungot Svíteková they will draw on Tadashi Suzuki’s method for actor, which Zden studied under SITI Co. as well as on Zden’s experience from Japanese contemporary dance scene she has experienced and collaborated with during the study trip in 2015 as part of i-Dance Asia.
The tools for shaping the movement, sound and textual material they will work with are drawn from research on Musical Score as a basis for working with dance, performance, text and voice. The research was carried out during 2020-2022 in Germany, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic and supported by a grant from the NRW Kultursekretariat Wuppertal, the Slovak Institute in Berlin, and the Fund for the Promotion of the Arts. The two artists have already exchanged creative ideas and processes during the last stages of this research.
