A SOLO FOR MR.FOLK
For the making of this piece, a deconstruction of traditional Slovakian folk dances has been varied, rebuilt and revitalized to form a surreal and current pop culture equivalent. Touching upon modern art, music and expressionism, we follow the pathway of a man's journey, revealing a fury of uplifting and enduring perspectives that lead us towards the idealization of himself and his traditional heritage.
