Does the process of ageing build up a wall between the seniors and youths? And the fact that we have grown up in another way than our grandparents? How could we get closer to each other in spite of all that?

The "pre-sentation" is the screen-optimized essence of the dance performance - which was originally planned to be premiered at this date, on the main stage of Trafó House of Contemporary Arts. Similarly to the stage production, the online version is focusing on a rarely discussed topic: how the passing of decades affect us and how the continuously changing spirit of the age forms us. Merging the genres of dance, interview, round-table discussion and behind the scenes film, the creators are looking for a universal language, which can be understood regardless of its social, cultural or generational context. The viewer and the creator are sharing a virtual space this time, so theatrical seats are not needed.

"Számomra ez a cím játék a nyelviséggel, a távolsággal. Bizonyos szokások, szavak kikopnak a használatból, háttérbe szorulnak – a kredenc szó ezt szimbolizálja. Egyes dolgok feledésbe merülnek, de megpróbáljuk őket életben tartani. A pince is metafora, az elmúlással függ össze, ugyanakkor a felhalmozás, a raktározás, a megőrzés, az emlékek metaforája is. Számomra az a kérdés, hogy hogyan lehet az emlékeket élővé tenni, hogyan lehet felhozni azt, ami lent maradt. Hogy hogyan teremthető meg a kapcsolódás."
