“Temel” is a performance, built on the personal feelings which emerge from the need of returning to the root – the root perceived as an authentic fundamental, deeply coded and forming our identity. This code of mystical connection with the unadulterated memory is a constantly repeating algorithm for changing the trajectory along which the artists move. This repetition brings them and the audience to a meditative state, which could be the key to the foundation, thanks to which we can build our uniqueness and protect ourselves from unification
