Waiting Room derniere in NoD

Waiting Room – The cult performance by Farm in the Cave for the last time in NoD
On the 8th December the theatre NoD in the centre of Prague presents the extraordinary and riveting theatre piece by one of the most recognized Czech theatre groups – Farm in the Cave with their cult performance Waiting Room. Waiting Room was developed as site-specific performance for the industrial venue of theatre NoD in 2006 and now, after 8 years of success all over the world, it returns to its home scene for the last time.
Waiting Room was awarded by the Czech magazine Respekt as one of the strongest dance performances and in 2011, the Farm in the Cave members were awarded by the prestigeous European Award of the New Theatre Reality. This performance interconnects the past of Central Europe with its present while using the intriguing tones and melodies of Slovak tango. Waiting Room is a very complex piece that also touches topics of European integration and the simultaneous nationalistic tendencies.
The story in Waiting Room is set to a train station in East Slovakia, in Žilina – Záriečie, a place from where the Slovak Jews were deported to concentration camps in neighboring countries during WW2. The waiting room is a place for encounters of the dead and the alive. The banal relationship triangle that is exposed in the play is a space for cumulated violence that arises from the unhealed historical trauma. The audience thus becomes a witness of the turmoil in Central European contemporary history. Special appearance will be given by Swedish dancer and choreographer Charlotta Öfverholm.

Farm in the Cave
An international theatre studio focused on the creation, development and research of human expression. It is defined by the relations between I-you, body-voice, culture-nature, public-intimacy, research-creation. It looks for a bodily articulation of that which cannot be expressed by word, by any other medium. Inspiration is drawn from the irregular terrain of music, from the torsos of cultural manifestations, from the human touch, from the architecture of space and a personal statement. The ensemble speaks about those realities which its members consider personally and socially appealing. The studio works under the leadership of its founder – director Viliam Docolomanský. An integral part of Farm in the Cave's work is not only creation of performances, but also educational activities, basic research of actors' art and selected cultural minorities. The studio started to form itself in 2001, during the preparation of Lorca project in Prague. The title Farm in the Cave is the literal translation of the Arabic work daimuz, which was the name of Lorca's family farm.
