About the performance
Ambrož lives in a world where there are no machines, no factories, and no shops. Everything he needs grows and floats in his lake. To pass the time, he annoys fishermen and plays with aquatic animals and objects thrown into his lake by land people. But when a shoe falls into the lake, which is different from the one already lying at the bottom of the lake, Ambrož suddenly remembers that his parents, before leaving him and moving to warmer waters, told him to find a wife to continue their family line. But where to look for her? There are far fewer water people than there are land people, and Ambrož does not know a single water woman. So he heads to the mainland, where the world is very different. The people there wear clothes, drink strange liquids instead of water, and do things that are completely incomprehensible to Ambrož. In order not to be afraid of him, he has to wrap himself in their clothes and pretend to be one of them. But even so, he does not dare to approach any land woman. Until one of them asks him to unclog her drain, through which she releases all the dirt from her house straight into the river. It doesn’t feel right to Ambrož, but if he wants to win her over, he has no choice but to help her. However, when he dives into the river to unclog the drain, he meets someone who doesn’t agree at all with his help in poisoning the river.
