    The dancers are captured in a world which frightens them, at least that is the impression one gets while watching their shaking bodies. They snuggle up and hold one another on their journey through the stage, which to them might represents the entire immense expanse of the landscape.
    Lucie Kocourková, Opera Plus, 25 October 2016

    Seemingly possessed, the dancers float above the stage, their torn movements are led by an invisible force which manipulates them, brings them back to earth which they are trying in vain to escape from.

    Clara Furey (b. 1983) is a Canadian nonconformist multidisciplinary artist: choreographer, dancer, actress and singer-songwriter. She studied music at the Paris Conservatory and graduated from dance at the acclaimed École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in 2003. As a performer she has danced in works by renowned choreographers, including George Stamos (Réservoir pneumatic 2008, Schatje 2001), David Zambrano (Tierras Enamoradas 2013), Damien Jalet (Red Waters 2011) and Benoît Lachambre (Chutes Incandescentes, 2012), who had an important impact on her artistic process. Hello… How Are You? (2011), a dance-theatre hybrid co-created with actress Céline Bonnier, marked her choreographic debut. She is the author of the project entitled Cosmic Love (2016) in which five dancers look for answers to certain existential questions. One of the recurring themes that she studies is the undefinable and omnipresent darkness. She performed alongside such names as Geraldine Chaplin and Udo Kier in the Guy Maddin film The Forbidden Room in 2015. Thanks to her great artistic affinity to Benoît Lachambre, she became the associate artist of the Par B.L.eux company a year later.

    Peter Jaško (1982) has taught dance classes in at least 46 countries all over the world over the course of his career. He took his first dance classes at the Slovak folk dance company Ďumbier, where he remained 11 years. He then graduated from the J. L. Bella Conservatory in Banská Bystrica and continued his education at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava before entering the international school of dance P.A.R.T.S. (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in Brussels (2002). He has performed in several projects by the choreographer David Zambrano since 2001, such as Twelve Flies Went Out At Noon (2005) and Soul Project (2006). He broadened his professional experience by working with well-respected artists and dance companies such as Zuzana Hájková, Opera Banska Bystrica, ASpO, R.O.P.A., Svalbard Company and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. He formed a poetic duet together with Clara Furey entitled Untied Tales (The Vanished Power of the Usual Reign) in 2015. Peter Jaško is co-founder of the Les SlovaKs Dance Collective.

    The dance career of Peter Jaško has had a similar direction as the career of his colleague and compatriot Milan Herich with whom they created the collective project Shared Night (2012).
