A FINE BALANCE BETWEEN MADNESS AND COMMITMENT
An extremely devoted man and 22 conference chairs form the basis of this intelligent and playful solo. PLI is an ingenious art performance which excels in its ability to surprise.
Viktor Černický is the multidisciplinary artist who, from the very beginning of his career, took the field of performing arts by storm. He has astonished the audience with his refreshing ideas and received number of awards for his unique style. Viktor Černický has been called both a visionary and a future hope for the performing arts.
PLI is Černický’s second piece, a nerve-wracking performance which turnes the conventions of performing upside down. One by one he stacks his chairs with tremendous patience and a little madness until they form magnificent fragments of architecture or imaginative sculptures.
Using the clever combination of a simple room and an abundance of chairs the performance has ability to be both minimalistic and grandiose at the same time. PLI is an unpredictable and humorous performance balancing between madness and commitment.
PLI is not just a great performance, it is a visionary step. A window into the theatre of the future where fundamentals of conventional art forms no longer apply.

Such incredibly powerful is this childlish world with its simplicity, craziness and fears.
