A mental-physical discipline created by Prof. Ivan Vyskočil. The foundation is experience and trials in behaviour (speaking, acting) with oneself (with and internal partner), in principle, alone - self-dialogue. To learn authentic, spontaneous, acting and interplay behaviour (behaviour and experience) and produce publically in situations of „public aloneness“ (Stanislavsky), with the presence and attention of „the audience“. In situations when - that is if - friends, observers are not there and the exclusion of visual and tactile contact.
