The Future Game_Subjective Future

The performance is a subjective, generational testimony of established artists who need to come to terms with their own future prospects.

Slovak dancer and choreographer Petra Fornayová’s art manifests a sense of engagement that she has applied to look at the issue of the uneasy and complicated future. She introduces the perspectives of four generations of art professions. Visual artist Natália Okolicsányiová, director Ján Šimko, choreographer Petra Fornayová and documentarist Adam Hanuljak make very civil presentations of their fictitious paths in life. They are performers making reports about themselves. They present their performance via a video projection on a screen, react to each other in dialogue, interactions, or their individual indications on the stage. The performance is a subjective, generational testimony of established artists who need to come to terms with their own future prospects. Already in the introduction, they use an electronic questionnaire to elect their representative profession. Then, they alternate in presenting coordinated play on the stage (mostly using a combination of their live performance with the sounds and visuals projected onto the screen). This results in interesting combinations, for example, a live actor and his projection on the screen, or live dialogue and reproduced sound or visual (graphic) projection supported by dance performances, and so on. The leitmotif of these fragments in the play is a worry resulting from the doubts about what will happen to the world and to us – taking into account the perspective of several frightening predictions.  On the backdrop of the play’s acting realizations, a constant fear of our own transience is frequently felt as a universal human worry.
