YOVO, One-Eighth Theater
Performance in English
YOVO wanders through the messy town and little villages of the global South, going across the whirlwind of pictures, interactions, impressions and obligations, searching for that, what for... for... for...
Rigoristic, physical, sober, strong performance of funny and dark buffonery turned into New Absurd. Expect co-performing.
One-Eighth Theatre creates new, brave, international theatre. Established in 2008 One-Eighth draws inspiration from the iceberg theory of Hemingway. It's an idea of abstract possibilitis suggesting, that some things should better be left unexplained or open to interpretation. Tip of the iceberg is no more than one-eighth of its whole. Enormous majority is hidden below water.
