Perfect family is but a picture of smiling faces. Captured moment, wrapped between four walls. Father [fah-ther] 1. a male parent 2. a father-in-law, stepfather, or adoptive father. The keynote of the dance performance is an individual relationship with father, friend, stranger, confidant, enemy… but still dad – for EVER. Our relationships are abstract, simple and yet complex, emotional and unreasonable. And in spite of all, I love him…

“With otherwise modest scenographic frame, but a bulky effect of lighting interventions (Janko Oven), striking musical background and soundtracks the young dance quartet rounds the event which is distinguished for mature consistency, enthusiasm and bodily wholeness and above all for rational communicative proportionality between personal statements of the performers and space for the viewer’s free interpretation.” [Zala Dobovšek, Delo]
