This is a modern chamber ballet. Music selected from tape is focused on vocal and symphony cycles by Gustav Mahler. Choreographic solutions in the concept of a triptych have a well-balanced scenic arrangement, an inner dramaturgy and bonding of sequences The main thesis - human suffering, anguish and alienation - is expressed by a scale of changing moods, emotional catharses, and states of mind. In a space surrounded by the audience, movement on stage communicates in an intimate, logical and contemplative way. The ballet guest performed at the NOMUS festival in Novi Sad (2004).
