Nové stromy vo mne or New Trees Inside of Me is the latest show from Štúdio tanca, the dance troupe from Banská Bystrica. From the thematic point of view it is a sequel to the About Tree Inside of Me show from 1996, into which choreo-grapher Zuzana Hájková put her feelings about moving from Bratislava to Banská Bystrica. In the current piece she further develops the idea of comparing man and tree. Nine dancers deal with the birth of man and tree, the connection between man and woman and mankind's relationship with nature. The performance takes place at the Štúdio tanca on Námestie Slobody 3, in Banská Bystrica, on November 30 at 19:00. Tickets cost Sk90. For more information call 048/4146-540.
