"Golem" is a movement based performance which explores the contemporary world constituted mainly by the free market and the global informational flow. The widely spread epidemic of consumerism is the crazy centrifuge of resources in terms of material products, emotions, sexual drives, desires. The performance ascetically chooses the simple routine act of chewing a gum for its only means of theatrical exploration. The project interprets the eternal dream for Paradise
and circles around the trinity "emptiness – consumption – pollution" in the context of the ancient Jewish myth for Golem.
