Extreme [The New Norm]

Slovak Theatre in London

"Reality lightened up with humour."

Life is unpredictable and shapes us to be flexible but over the past two years, we have lived through another level of extreme. We couldn’t rely on what would happen in the next hour, let alone in the next month.
We find ourselves living beyond the norm. Extremes became the norm.

This show reflects on the biggest event of the past decade, which globally influenced the life of every individual. In a colourful collage of scenes and characters, the play shows the contrasting situations brought by the pandemic, many times based on true events.
Through collaborative devising, by using physical movements, music and songs, the artists explore the patterns of behaviour of society and individuals in a time of catastrophe. While this stage of our lives might already seem distant, their artistic treatment emphasizes the experience of crisis rather than the event itself, as it desires to serve as a mirror to challenge opinions and call to new perspectives.

Ultimately, the show, filled with both seriousness and humour, offers a collective therapy through art.
