Is our last word before death really our last word? Ján Sedal

Edge symbolizes the transition time between active life and seemingly passive old age. Edge opens a range of tabooized themes connected with aging, transformation of sexuality, body image, and loneliness.

An unsentimental theatrical shape on the border of documentary and fiction, which moves between various means of expression and languages.

This international collaboratively devised performance is an inquiry into the lives of people more than 50 years old who have worked in varied theater and dance settings. In the main roles are people who find themselves to be “everyday experts” - oldagers who have their own opinions and experiences. 

Participants: Ján Sedal, Josef Kotěšovský, Petr Veleta, Mária Zagátová, Martin Bálik, Krzysztof Raczkowski, Ildikó Móger and others from Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
