Honestly Old

HONESTLY OLD. Fake theatre performance.

PS. This is NOT a work in process.

A Mexican ex-dancer and choreographer who always disliked dancing and forced herself to do it for no reason, but in this project she fakes she likes it once more / A Mexican ex-dancer who later became a director with a magnetic power to pull interesting artists to work with her, and leads them blindly into a confusing embarassing direction / A Finnish director and performer of physical theatre who has created a project to live as a warrior femme fatale in order to fight against boredom / A Mexican theatre director and choreographer who for the first time in his life questions his artistic principles right after reaching success/ A Serbian dramaturg who stopped writing for years and now is surviving through a personal crisis by writing this play for dancers / Experienced Czech and Czech/American theater makers framing the whole action and bringing clearness and sanity for the whole thing to exist. Together for the first and the last time realizing they are not the same people who they used to be, neither the people they say they are now.
