SEE, the first bees-R's production, is a dance and live music perfomance created by Davide Sportelli with Soňa Ferienčíková, Zuzana Hianiková, Jaroslav Ondruš and Jana Tereková. Davide´s obsession with the gifts and the intrigues of sight becomes the brutal and sensitive confrontation of rock music and dance, clumsy games around different modes of the act of seeing. The musicians Massimo Giangrande and Silas Bieri are taking part in the performance.
Is it really possible to be professional in the art of exposing ourselves, of making something visible? Isn’t it necessary to be childish / wild/ passionate to be able to dive freely and fully and produce unexpected beauty? Does a good audience have to watch politely and understand only what the makers hope it will be watched and understood? Isn’t there perhaps something more to be spied, realized, digged out, around and between what we are used and able to control?
We know it is possible to manipulate the inconsistent tides of the attention, and such ability of seducing and attracting can be very useful. But how about riding an impetus and accepting to share our fragility?
SEE tries to show what is visible, obvious, undeniable.
And to reveal what is hidden, or fuzzy, or vague, or too small to be noticed. But also to be simple as a jump into the water, offering the chance to be watched by anarchic, ironic, childish eyes.
