Popis Dead in the Pool is part of a choreographic and theoretical research, which in the form of an indefinite cultural event (intervention in a public space), works with the imagination of visitors in the sense of "what if something happened". We usually understand clowns as someone to amuse us with their clumsiness or to scare us. If a clown is doing no such thing and just looking to his job as a rescuer in case of danger, he may seem a little suspicious to his surroundings. The tension of such an expectation that something will happen turns the situation on its head. The visitors become the ones who may start to act comically, irrationally based on their suspicions, start to create their own scenarios in their heads and act on them, or just ignore it and move on. The visitor may thus unwittingly assume the role of a clown, while the real clown acts as if nothing is wrong. The intervention is a situation in a public space where the audience, along with random passers-by, become part of the work itself, and their (non)presence also narrates the work. The research elaborated the possibilities of choreography (also involving inactivity and passivity as movement) in order to activate surrounding institutions and (casual) spectators.
