Spoon under Nose

Nitish Jain & collective


Performance for three people.

SPOON UNDER NOSE An intimate, multisensory performance for 3 audience. A blindfold, headphones and warm hands. Inspired by the mother figures from Kytice by K. J. Erben, we explore the idea of tenderness and care, perception of the known and unknown tickling the mind, and stories of the earth: simple and plain. This is a sensory adventure to interesting places and inner discoveries through tactile touches, smells, stories and above all, imagination.

NITISH JAIN (India), IVANA ATANASOVA (Macedonia) and LARA HEREU (Catalonia), currently based in Prague, met during their master studies at DAMU and discovered a shared interest in creating devised and poly-lingual performances. Ivana and Lara are performers and professional actresses and studied Authorial Acting while Nitish is an architect by background and studied Scenography at DAMU. The collective’s work invites audiences to engage sensorially with unique environments and stories. This project is produced by Studio MoreThanThat - an artistic research practice that focuses on the intersection of architecture, immersive theatre and storytelling through sensory perception.
