Radical Bulgarian icon of contemporary European choreography, performance art and song Ivo Dimchev returns to Prague at last. His solo is made to heal not only particular physical or psychological difficulties you have but also all of them simultaneously! I-Cure is not just one-to-one therapy, it is designed to cure every audience member at the same time! I-Cure can also heal people you love and care for, it all depends on where you would like to focus the healing power of I-Cure…
Making reference to interactive TV shows, with images of palm-tree islands and crackling open fires, Dimchev, dressed in drag, seeks positive energy in music, dance, esotericism, spirituality, massage and sex. His Great Healing is extremely comical until the turning point, the almost unendurable catharsis at the end.
If healing is a choice then why not to make this choice while being in the theatre? Why waste an hour trying to be more “cultural”, when we can use it to be “healthier”?
