Dancing through time

Iter in tempore

Iter in tempore represents the journey of a contemporary character who discovers, in reverse chronological order, the 19th-14th centuries, through dance and music. The featured curiosity of childhood is the motif of the journey, the irresistible attraction offered by the music and the playful dance steps are guiding our character further and further in time. This scenario is an attempt to demonstrate that the past can be understood only when we release ourselves from the power of the contemporary prejudice. The trip is made backwards, with small steps – the differences between past and present are increasing in an invisible way. Thus, between the two dates (present and medieval) there are no breaks, but continuity. The costumes used in this performance are impressive by their diversity, the dance is surprisingly inventive and the selected music parts can become a lesson for the history of music.
