The extension of the wooden branches on the limbs is the starting point of a possible story of human existence. It can be understood as a connection between humankind and unspoiled nature, as something life-giving and simultaneously restrictive and even frightening. That we exist is something we learn to realize; what we look like is something we learn to accept.

There Is a Sense of Being allows spectators to delve into the darkest layers of their own existence, to discover archetypes and wild animality, so that they can then throw them away with a single gesture and set the mask of civilization as the convention of human existence. If they know nothing at the beginning, then at the end, when these extensions are no longer part of the human body, they already know “everything”. The fact that they can name things, however, is not a victory for civilization, but rather a resignation to their own freedom.

Tereza Lenerová's new production in collaboration with Jan Horák is a loose continuation of the Taxon project, which was created together with the artist Adam Vačkář. While Taxon dealt mainly with the possibilities of movement within the extension of the body in the form of wooden branches, the production of There Is a Sense of Being is already a specific narrative.
