Mezi námi (Among Us) is an interactive and multigenerational, dance and visual performance with five performers, two musicians and one puppet for all children and adults. On the principle of children´s games and origami, it encourages imagination and emphasizes the importance of home.
What does “home” mean for children?
The performance develops a story that can happen anywhere on earth. At first we all are children. Our home is a family or a place where there are toys and fairy tales or dreams. Adults are at home where they live, or stay and work. But also they move homes. And then children are looking for a key and way to their new home. But home of our childhood and first dreams are deeply hidden in our souls, hearts and memories.
Our story is real, but at the same time a fairy tale. It reflects a child´s view of the world which is then confronted with an adult´s perspective.
Among us it is a journey into childhood, memories and dreams.

"A functional fairy tale projection, live music and well thought work with props and a puppet establishes enchanting, fictional worlds. "
