Push the Button

„mime gamesque“ from the world of PC gaming. Absurd grotesque, uniting mime, beat-boxing and virtuality.

Push the Button

One apartment, five roommates, dozens of life troubles… ESCAPE
One city, five killers, dozens of unexpected possibilities… ENTER

What is virtual and what is real? Push the Button is „mime gamesque“ about five beautiful roommates, escaping from their life troubles into the world of PC games. This performance combines physical performing of Mime Fatale actresses with an extensive sound accompaniment of beatboxers Tiny Beat and Dozr. It is a nostalgy for both gamers and those, who simply wish to enjoy the original union of mime and virtual reality.

„Push the Button literally oozes desire to bring something new to the genre of mime, something unknown and remarkable.”
– (Czech) Dance Actualities

„An exceptional performance – of both fighting dancers and unstoppable beatboxers.”
– (Czech) Theatre News

The performance was premiered on 10th of June 2013 in NoD Theatre, Prague.

„Curiosity, vitality, temperament, these elements of Balkanian life are repeating over and over in our performance. For Mime Fatale it is a challenge to take the technique of mime closer to acting and find new dynamics and energy, which we´ll extend to audience.“

Work in progress 30th of April 2015, 7 p.m. in Budapest – Bakelit Multi Art Centre.

Premiere 11th of May 2015, 8 p.m. NoD Theatre, Prague.

Ešús / Mess Kit

new performance compilating campfire experiences and road-travels. Prepare yourself for forest animals and country songs, as well as mime and beat-boxing.

Ešús / Mess Kit

A new show from Czech meadows and forests on the theme of tramping and campfire experiences. Accompanied by live beat-boxing and country melodies, this performance completes the loose trilogy which began with the cabaret staging of Cannery Row and then moved into the virtual realm of Push the Button. Now, Mess Kit takes us to the world of campfire escapism and the nostalgic Czech pastime of “tramping”, all with a hearty dose of humor. Be advised: Wood animals, wild beat-boxers and mimes „in natural“ will be present.

The show was premiered on October 18th 2014 in Studio ALTA, Prague, as part of the Pragues MIME FESTival.

„Fascinatingly insane“
„Combination of self-irony, non-verbal humor and a step outside of the genre“
