K.áO.sz! was originally inspired by Bizet’s Carmen, the famous romantic melodrama of wild passion, debauchery and betrayal, but it is definitely not a mere remake or paraphrase of this classic opera. On the stage carefully set up by Frenák, through mixing together the myth of opera with other elements taken from the world of circus and wrestling, as well as with the fashion creations of Tamás Király, it becomes a dynamic, physical dance theatre.
The stage-setting is not ordinary: coffee-bar tables and chairs around a boxing ring in the middle: a real arena where a powerful and daring dance-struggle takes place. Again and again new figures come into the ring to fight with each other and with themselves. Fanatic lovers, enemies, ones seeking vengeance, debauchers and victims: passionate about each other. But this boxing match is a public attraction: not only do the „players” participate in the piece, but also the spectators. The dancers – players of this harsh and raw fighting – interact with the audience. In the chaos of bodies, noises, mysterious lights and cigarette smoke no one can be sure who is a spectator and who is a dancer.
