Solo

From the classic pantomime to Butoh, from the physical comedy to contemporary mime theater pieces. His mime is modern, pure and up to date. It is influenced by different styles and genres, but in the end always goes its own way.
Radim Vizváry will introduce both classical and modern, both poetic and comical works. You can laugh and cry without him saying single word – there are needless in his art. In this way you will see the best of him and through it, what is the current pantomime about.

About the company

NOT SPEAKING DOES NOT MEAN REMAINING SILENT

We want to free pantomime, tear it from its chains, shatter the glass wall and drag the rotting carcass of mime theater into the whirlwind of the present. We topple high forms into the scalding mud of Modern Art. We free the body in the same way that we constrain it – with movement, rhythm and emotion. We create new spaces for the body that also serve to imprison.
We re-work classic material into new shapes and forms, reflecting contemporary reality in its splendor and filth, ambition and absurdity. We are looking for something that we can never find, because all is in motion, forever in change. And movement is our language, forever flowing, without end or beginning.
On stage, the world is reflected in the human body as if in a mirror.
