questionnaire with participant Tomas Marny Moravek (CZ)




When have you been to Budapest - Hungary with your piece and artistic work earlier?

In 2011 I was taking part of the festival L1danceFest with the show of Jan Bárta ,,Is this about paradise? ...not exactly”.

What do you know about Hungary and what kind of informations do you have about our dance life?
That it's difficult to understand your language. I like your dance scene. You have great dancers.

Do you have any preference who do you want to reach with your art and piece?
All humans sitting in the audience room of the theatre.


What kind of piece will you bring to L1danceFest and does this piece mean any differences or similarities to your earlier works?
It's my first Visegrad cooperation – a collaboration between Czech, Polish and Hungarian artists.

What exaclty did you work on with this piece and where did you perform it already?
I created the light design for the performance Josha – a portrait. We have played it in: Bratislava (SK), Budapest (HU), Poznan (PL).

Do you have any hobby beside working as a dancer or creator?
My hobby is my work, my work is my hobby.

Can you write some details about your artistic life - which direction did you come from and which direction do you go right now? Tell us some important steps from your background!
I feel more like a technician than an artist, someone who is supporting artists to realize their ideas by the help of light design. My way (direction) is to educate myself all the time. The biggest step for me was to admit to myself that I want to work as a technician and to do what I want to do. Seemingly aasy but still a difficult choice.

How did your summer time go? Did you get any new inspirations?
I have had a great summer. A lot of work and a bit of holiday. I got inspired while diving in Slovenia where the light breaks on the water surface.

Does it mean any differences to play your pieces in different countries? If so, could you please tell us in what sense?
Every space and every person is different. We are comming from different backgrounds, we think differently, we see differently the colours, the sunset, the sunrise and I love these differences. Life is more colorful this way.

Do you work and show your work for getting applause (for the audience) or does the working process mean anything else for you? What kind of feedback are you open for?
Applause is nice but it's a very fleeting thing. I like constructive feedbacks but the best is if you have nothing to say about the show.

Do you read critics about your works? What kind of critic do you need?
I’ve never read critics about my work but I would like to read some. Important critics are mostly coming from the creative team of the show.

Do you criticize other’s works? Do you write about it?
If I would have something to say about it. Not yet, but once it must happen.

Are you open for a round table discussion with the audience after a premier or after your show?
I love it, for me it’s some kind of obsession as the adrenaline in sports. During those discussions I have the feeling of being naked in front of the audience. Naked without any theater - technical and other tricks. Face to face with reality.

Here you find some words, could you put them in sentences which could be kind of ars poetic of you!
COMMUNITY, GETTING CLOSER, EXCHANGE, FILLED IN, RELIGION, NATION, HOMAGE, HUG, PERFORM, POPULAR, ORGANIC FOOD, SENSE
To be a theatre maker is a COMMUNITY job.
In the theatre we are GETTING CLOSER to each other for the time of show.
EXCHANGE keep us alive.
I cannot wait when this Questionnare will be FILLED IN.
About RELIGION I have nothing to say today.
What does it mean NATION?
HOMAGE is to eat fruit dumplings with cottage cheese.
Let's HUG!
Peter PERFORMs playing piano and pause presence.
POPULAR people die like others.
ORGANIC FOOD left my plate.
It doesn't make SENSE.

Do you have any question?
NO!

Tomas is the lighting technician of Sunna No Onna which takes place on 19th September in MU Theatre and lighting designer of JOSHA - a portrait which  takes place on 21st September in MU Theatre.
