The festival’s 26th edition includes an exhibition of contemporary art, theater, workshops, a festival school of arts management, public discussions, performances for children, ensembles from the Czech Republic and abroad, and much more.
The festival opens with Un spectacle documentaire de Superamas: L’homme qui tua Mouammar Kadhafi, which was part of the the main program at this year’s prestigious theater festival in Avignon. The Slovak dance performance L. Bobalik, M. Hriešik: Timeout Burnout explores the subject of mental exhaustion, and also coming from Slovakia is the ensemble Debris. Meanwhile, Dutch artist Johannes Bellinkx’s Reverse takes participants on a non-conformist tour presenting a very different reality of Prague.
There will also be several Czech premieres. Vosto5 invites audiences to their latest piece, Sentimental, which they have subtitled “Come and Have a Real Beer at a Simulated Festival.” The artists’ collective Nesladim, which seeks to destigmatize mental illness through theater, presents Day Blinds Me, Evening Soothes, Night Hides Me, and director Zuzana Šklíbová presents the performance El Padre with Antonie Formanová in the lead. 4+4 Days in Motion has also thought of children, for whom we are planning six performances.
