Overview

Czech multidisciplinary artist Viktor Černický has created works that span genres, mixing dance with performance, circus acts and physical theatre. Over the Christmas and New Year period, Vicktor will gift Hong Kong audiences with his award-winning solo performance PLI.

In the Prison Yard, PLI brings together 22 conference chairs, obsessive rhythm and one devoted man. From a small platform, Viktor dives resolutely into infinite construction, reconstruction and deconstruction of the universe. The performance is a clever and playful solo, a physical metaphor for endless human dynamics, patience and striving that turns even the most ordinary objects into incredible pieces of contemporary circus.

PLI was presented in 2018 after two years of work and received the ‘Audience Award’ and ‘Total Award’ at the Czech Dance Platform 2019, don’t miss the chance to meet the talented artist and the lively performance.
