The present tense of a dance performance is a dialogue between the past and the future. Living in a whirlwind of global events and their consequences, it is possible to see how two extremes collide – peopleʼs historical memory and the desire to undo the past and to create new things. The beliefs formed in the past, the foreign traditions imposed on society, are rooted in the memory of generations, and therefore, in public space and even in oneʼs own immediate environment, one can see the legacy of the occupation, the nostalgia for a period when everything was “equal”. On the other hand, the increasingly prevalent cancel culture encourages us to give up our identity, which was formed under the wrong conditions in the past and which has brought us up the way we are today. In this way, family members, neighbours or citizens of the same country move towards exclusion and even confrontation: as if in a game, the boundary between two rivals is blurred: the past and the future, with different truths, values and goals.
Is it possible to win a game where the goal is to see the untruth in the truth? Or perhaps the answer lies not in combat but in dialogue? We know one thing – such move requires courage! “Truth or Dare” is a well-known game that everyone is invited to play. The rules of this game are simple: dare to resist the rules of a game / regime or let someone else decide for you – what is your truth? But does always dare = truth? Or maybe truth > < dare? We are all pieces in this global game, constantly moving through space as a game board in order to be on the right side at the end of our game.
