One Step Before the Fall

A hypnotic wave of voice and sound by Lenka Dusilová and power dance by Markéta Vacovská converge in a single moment in the boxing ring. This multi-genre project by the acclaimed Spitfire Company deals with the themes of fighting, exhaustion, the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease, and collapse.
