The Fulcrum
Perfomance “The Fulcrum” is a symbolic but at the same time physical attempt to find the support in reality, where the basic values are changing and are being replaced by the new guiding lines. A controversial merging of the feeling of flight and the fear of fall results into the feeling of both personal greatness and total solitude. ‘The Fulcrum’ is transferring into a metaphor of finding ‘a pivot’ and raises the question about who we are when we are alone and whether we can handle it or not
