Untitled - This solo, movement and visual performance is inspired by the work of photographer Francesca Woodman and the feeling of transience that the phenomenon of photography evokes. In "Untitled", actress and director Sláva Daubnerová gives the viewer a glimpse of the creative process. The production's message is built up using picture, thorough reconstruction of the space and reality with which Woodman worked. The audience thus, in "live broadcast", follows how Woodman, with the aid of a self-timer, may have created her most famous photograph. Words are unnecessary. Nakedness as costume.
