Ever since the times of Modernism it is considered valid that a theatre event may originate out of anything – even a telephone book. The 20th century is a sort of telephone book, the only difference being that the majority of numbers ring in vain. Almost nobody replies to those calls anymore. Things are gradually becoming blurred. Yet the spaces in which our curiosity rings in vain are no dead archives. On the contrary. They are vivid images of memories of the future, which constitute the contemporary man.

The 20th century is the time of the eruption of new artistic practices and quests for new technologies; it is at once the bloodiest period in the history of humankind. Paradoxes lie everywhere. It is those paradoxes that the theatrical dance performance 20th Century Fog explores by evoking some emphasises that are to be found in the relationship between the commercial and the engaged, the real and the abstract, dance and film – between culture and barbarism.
