Off-beatInto the body which harmoniously develops and reaches its highest level of the energy, the soul of the dance enters. For the gymnast, the movement and the culture of body are goals by itself, but for the dancer they are just the means.“ Isadora Duncan

Performance, that explores a close relationship between music and dance of baroque from a view of contemporary dancer. Contact of breath and musical rhythm, impulse movements of contemporary dancer, based on baroque music, dialogue with a roots of contemporary dance. Tomášik is following the relation of contemporary dancer with a rhythm, connecting inhale and exhale to encoded rhythm structure of baroque music. He moves simultaneously between external influences of history of the dance and internal concentration of the dancer. The artist is trying to discover physical potential, that would allow to the moving dancing body to step out of the known dance techniques and social ideas about the body.
