Theatrum Mundi 2.0
Theatrum mundi 2.0 is Multimedia installation and group performance that captures the inner space of man and metaphorically also the world. In the Jesuit College, performance continues on a permanent exhibition of the States of Mind. Performers will work with individual states of mind. The basis of group performance is interactive projection and theater turntable. Performance will accumulate in one place and rays will roll off after GASK. The viewer becomes an active element of the installation. The concept for GASK was created by Darina Alster. The video installer is Michal Kindernay. Collaboration: Pavel Havrda Acknowledgments include the Study of Heroes. The following performances are: Lenka Klodová, František Kowolowsky, Gaby Bila-Gunther, Jana Orlová, Kateřina Olivová, Marie Zandálková, © Merry, David Helan and Miloš Šejn, Kateřina Olivová, Petra Pětiletá, Ladislav Vondrák, Vladimír Havlík, Mojmír Pukl, Jennifer Helia De Felice, Elis Unique, Eva Sližová, Katarina Kadijevic, Aneta Jaurisová, Mariana Kuželová, Jan Škrob, Helena Machová, Jan Běhounek

Performance Red agent i did as a part of festival CreARTure in Postgallery, Kaunnas, Lithuania. 8.9.2018. Photos by Airida Rekstyte. Red Agent: Inner invasion of love outwardly manifests itself through the performance piece. Our bodies are mortal, our feelings are immortal. We create our future body through our emotions. There is no need for fear. Love on the edge of pain is spreading our soul to the entire word.
Tension Relay Posthuman tension, Invasion of Love, identity research, reclaiming emotions, reinvention of love, Army of people, we are all heroes, our feelings are political … Darina Alster in cooperation with PXS, Jakub Ra and Army of people, Ida Elastic, technical support Andrej Boleslavský. The internal invasion of love manifests itself externally through action. There is no place for fear. We create our next body from our present emotions. Our love is love. Performance is a common prayer for civilization. The Power of Chaos Recovering Life. Part of the live set Idy Elastic as well as the totally exhaustive performances from PXS. The Army of People, through movement, ritual, words and various subjects, will symbolize past, future and present identities. For Darina Alster, the pattern is repeatedly crafted as a slow prayer for preserving a lively nucleus that has the ability of self-renewal even after any crisis or disaster. Performers and gallery visitors will be part of this figure. They can also circumnavigate the labyrinth in its circumference. We build Magic against the collapse of the world. Magic is everyday. There is no chance of fear. We love life and experience love. Fear generates hatred. Love interconnects. We humans are also spiritual beings. Entering the soul into the body is a transition from 5D to 3D space. Time is a tool of the body. Gender limits us. With the strain in society, we balance ourselves with art. Love on the edge of pain spreads our souls to the whole world. Gallery space now becomes shrine and darkroom.
Invitation for collective performance Tension Relay which we did with PXS, Elastic, Jakub Ra and Army of People 17.8. 2018 at Pragovka.

Strings of desire
My performance Red Agent was a part of Performance Train Project (TAC curator Rokko Juhas) at Karlín studios, Prague 11.7.2018.
Part of it is a poem:
Who will take the stale heart/ from the bottom of the ocean/ and turn it into a flute?
We are apes jumping from a branch to branch/ beating our breast by the fire.
My heart is naked like a penis/ Desire is pounding in my head like dried blood.
I am wriggling./ I am a snake skin/ buried deep in the ground.
My heart has broken into thousands of pieces./I drink wine from its fragments .
I am getting drunk from several cups at a time.
Goblets are genitalia flowers of various shapes. /Where it starts to get interesting,/ we are short of words.
First time we met with Rokko Juhas at Malamut festival in Ostrava. Autumn 2015
Performance Art must be beautiful
Performance Art must be beautiful. artist must be beautiful was a openning ceremony of the exhibition at Walk Thru gallery. I readed my personal manifest covering all body with mud. The voice of Marina Abramović iconic performance was the sound of situation. Than I ran away through the city, than was swimming in the fontain.
“Her libido will produce far more radical effects of political and social change than some might like to think.”is citation of Helene Cixous from her book The laugh of the Medusa. This strong sentence is leitmotiv of my exhibition in Walk Thru Gallery in Hradec Králové. Exhibitons is running from 23.6. untill the end of summer 2018. Grafitti is made by Oliver Heller.
Principium Nativitatis is project which i did with friend and painter Jana Šárová. It is combination between the act of performance and painting. Classical painting is interrupted by the presence of the action. The environment of the gallery becomes a part of the image space. The painting is object, which was destroyed by performance. The crimson red color symbolizes the inside of the body. The inner becomes external, and vice versa. The imaginary door is the image of an egg. Performance was shown as a videoinstallation in windows of Impulz house in Hradec Králové as a part of the Hradec Air festival 23–28.6.2018.
