You Are Not the One Who Shall Live Long

You are asked to explain
Asked for purpose, statement of intention and concept
But there is nothing
All comes out of nothing
And there is nothing to explain

Except for acceptance that
What we do
What is
And who we are
Is flux, constant change.

What we do is not us
It comes to us
Out of somewhere, nowhere
No one knows what it is

What is this?

Death waits in the dark

One of the best ways to ignite inner activity is to understand, that you can die at any moment, is a quote by Georgi Gurdshiev, a very interesting dance mystic from the beginning of the 20th century.


The creative ensemble RootlessRoot (Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea) could almost be seen as house authors of the DOT504 company.

Reasonable dose of cruelty of DOT504

DOT504 has also decided to go with a well-tested procedure – they approached and invited to cooperate the choreographic duo Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea – they have created successful pieces for them and gave the company its distinctive physical image.

You Are Not The One Who Shall Live Long – Nothing new under the sun

The DOT504 company maintains the crystalic essence of the contemporary theathre with a central European vibe. The new piece called You Are Not The One Who Shall Live Long Is a shining example of this genre.
