A robust investigation unfolds in performance

A unique fusion of dance and physical theatre is set to entertain all those who will be at the Technopolis 20 garden in Paphos on Friday at 8.30pm.

The performance, entitled Robust, will be performed by the Chacma Performance group from Denmark. It is a unique blend of physical theatrical performance, sound and dance which will leave a strong visual impression on the audience.

The four performers that make-up Chacma examine – based on their own experiences – how the enormous pressure from society has an impact on our psychological standards and ideals. Chacma’s main vision is to make people observe themselves and our reality with new investigative eyes.

Robust is part of an investigation into societal diseases of the modern western world, including anxiety, stress and depression. It explores and asks if the individual is to blame for being sick. The multiple layered performance makes us question whether society is the disease and citizens the symptom. Are people to blame for the global deterioration of humanitarian ideals? Or are they healthy individuals in a world of demise? This performance looks into what kind of person you need to be to become strong enough to survive in a world with darkness at the verge of the horizon.

The four professional actors and dancers who work in Aarhus and Copenhagen are Trine Kinch (actor and director), Ludmilla Faber (actor and dancer), Laura Feline Ebbesen (actor and dancer) and Maria Ulbrandt Laumark (actor and dancer).
