rezidence Archa.Fresh / premieres 13 & 14 July 2021

What can a single breath mean?
A fluttering scarf on a mountain peak. A cloud of steam. The smell of the ocean.

Everything that flows, billows, spreads or smoulders is carried by or wafts through the air.

In Czech, the word "drak" means both dragon and kite. There are many different types of dragons/kites.
Heavenly dragons are servants of the gods and guardians of their land. Earth dragons live in the seas and rivers. Spirit dragons are protectors of peasants, they can summon rain and wind. Guardian dragons keep a watchful eyer over treasure. Some dragons have five fingers.

The paper dragon – or kite – is the first portent of fortune, hills and plains.
It makes wishes come true.

The Ministry of Kites is meeting at a slow pace.
Breathe in and breathe out.

The TABULA RASA association was established in 2019 as the logical outcome of the collaboration of artists who met on several different projects. The core team consists of Mikoláš Zika, Jeník Tyl and Jan Brejcha, who studied production and scenography at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre at DAMU in Prague. The association provides an auteur platform for the creation of theatre and other projects, combining various artistic approaches. It is a production-artistic cell that in addition to its own original theatrical productions, creates exhibitions, scenography, publications and art objects.
