What happens if you lose faith in your art? You find yourself staring into blinding nothingness , into shallow grey reality ...

Miřenka Čechová and Andrea Miltnerová in a dance-graphic production on the loss of faith in arts that has taken the role of life. On the impossibility to stop and the impossibility to stay. On the beauty of decay, the violence of drill, the unbearable present and the past that always catches us.
What does it feel like to be dedicated to some unfathomable higher entity? Artists can be so dedicated to their purpose that it becomes their life's meaning, their faith, even a sort of religion. Can faith be taken away?

Concept, direction: Miřenka Čechová, Choreography and performing: Miřenka Čechová, Andrea Miltnerová, Music: Bohren und der Club of Gore, Costume design: Judy Hansen, Set design: Jakub Tauš, Petr Boháč, Lighting design: Martin Špetlík, Sound design: Matouš Hekela

Distinctive and award-winning work with artistic and audiovisual resources is
characteristic for Tantehorse, however, I think that this sensitive and delicate, almost bland but due to that even more intense screening, will transform into a persistent recollection.
Dominik Melichar, Theatre Journal, 20/2/2014
“Although the two dancers in Faith focus rather on the dark side of the dance, they also in a special way map the strength and the joy that art brings. All negative also simultaneously has its positive side. Sadness at the same time sets out a space for pleasure or carries its potential. Miřenka points out the opposites that attract each other. Life and death. Flowers and fading.
The aesthetics and the atmosphere of her Faith reminds us of Japanese calligraphy. It is strong, and even with the use of very little, it scares the audience by its monotony, which they have to overcome themselves.”
