14 images of lost despair
Story of seven characters, born from fourteen images.
Of fourteen hands, getting rid of sixty-six kilos of unhappy meat and of the whiteness of two hundred and six bones.
Of fourteen funny images searching for ten thousand lost dreams and of one meaningful reason to exist.
Of fourteen furious desires to love seventy fingers, covering two gentle breasts in two hundred and seventy-six spoons of soil.
Of four hundred and fifteen confused words in seventy-two minutes, of two litres of water in two cups and in one very, very deep plate.
Of forty pieces of wood, four spoons and eight stools, of two hammers and thirty-three hammered nails.
Of seven onions, spread in seventy-six kisses and of twenty-nine blows of a stick.
And as a matter of course, of thirty distorted teeth and one lewd tongue above the head of a dead albatross in never ending soft landscape.

Scena.cz (04/05/09)

Na programu 15. ročníku České taneční platformy 2009, která právě končí, byly vedle dalšího uvedeny dvě choreografie umělecké dvojice Jozefa Fručka a Lindy Kapetaney, kteří v letech 2002 - 2005 působili v souboru Wima Vandekeybuse Ultima Vez, kde se také seznámili (dnes žijí se svou dcerou v Řecku).

Taneční aktuality (12/03/09)

From the subtitle of the performance: "14 images of lost despair" no-one would expect a lighthearted comedy.

Lidovky (11/03/09)

The company' s new choreography, 100 Wounded Tears, is a sequence of fourteen images of lost desperation.

Rozhlas / mozaika (24/02/09)

Nedělní uvedení nové choreografie Jozefa Fručka a Lindy Kapetaney hodnotila v Mozaice publicistka Nina Vangeli v rozhovoru s Petrem Šrámkem.
