A spectacle of Izadora Weiss, addresses one of major modern dilemmas, our fascination with the virtual world while a real life pass by with all of its richness and authenticity. Staring in a metaphorical window our heroine is waiting for extraordinary events on the other side. Transfixed, she can’t see what is so close that she could touch it with her fingertips, living people. She is lonely, helpless and too scared to confront their emotions. She can’t seem to realize that only force shaping our character and personality is our interaction with emotions and actions of others. Without that we are transparent and empty, indifferent towards what is a highest value – the life.

A window to “the world over there” is a meaningful symbol, a commentary to a platonic world of ideas that dominated the way in which a contemporary human mind is trying to cope with a great mystery of being. We are constantly creating such windows ourselves, from virtual space of media, web portals, empty entertainment to ideological and religious illusions.

The picture we are seeing on stage is far from colorful computer images. Their originality is for Izadora Weiss feigned and pretentious. In essence, they are even more monotonous than grey view of the cloudy seaside which surpasses them with true, genuine beauty. However, that is also an illusion. The life is here and now, constantly changing. It can’t be rewound and played again. Who misses that is truly lost.


Two centuries separate us from the time, Mozart wrote his German Dances. A historical period shaped considerably by wars, revolutions, and all sorts of social upheavals.

With this in mind I found it impossible to simply create different dance numbers reflecting merely the humor and musical brilliance of the composer. Instead, I have set six seemingly non-sensical acts, which obviously ignore their surroundings. They are dwarfed in face of the ever present troubled world, which most of us for some unspecified reason carry in our souls.

Although the entertaining quality of Mozart’s Sechs Tänze enjoys great general popularity, it shouldn't only be regarded as a burlesqué. Its humor ought to serve as a vehicle to point towards our relative values. Mozart's ability to react upon difficult circumstances with a self-preserving outburst of nonsensical poetry is well known.
