Výš / Higher

The production Výš (Higher) takes us into a world that looks like ours only on the surface: two performers versus one strange object with rungs and stringers. They want to get to the top, but the outcome is uncertain: they chase after the vague possibility that it will be better up there, their movements more relaxed and their minds freer. But gravity is a selfish force that transforms their every step. And it’s not their only obstacle. They must also overcome the mad impetuousness with which they try to reach their goal: if you’re going to reach higher, then at least by the most convoluted route possible!
