CZECH THEATER AND DANCE SHOWCASE AT THE CZECH CENTER
SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 2014, 3PM – 6PM

Each show will take approx. 20 min. with short break in between.


EDGE BY ALT@RT o.s.
Experimental  physical theater
Is our last word before death really our last word? Jan Seda
This international collaboration bordering documentary and fiction is an inquiry into the lives of people over 50. The title Edge symbolizes the transition time between active life and seemingly passive old age, and explores a range of taboos connected to aging, transformation of sexuality, body image and loneliness. www.altart.cz

MUCH MORE THAN NOTHING BY ME-SA, PETER SAVELL AND STANO DOBAK
Contemporary interdisciplinary dance
Spontaneous and crazy performance exploring the theme of manipulation.  Devoted dancers are “just” fulfilling absurd and impossible tasks making them exhausted with every new command and passive in their personal choices. Selected for the European “Priority Companies List 2013”. www.me-sa.cz

SIMULANTE BANDE BY VerTeDance & ARCHA THEATER
Contemporary  dance
Award-winning dance performance exploring the problems faced by disabled people in everyday life.
Four dancers, two of them handicapped, are trying to resolve a small part of the unexpectedly wide range of problems  which disabled people face in an effort to lead a “normal” life.
Live music by acoustic-electric duo DVA

THE GOOD AND THE TRUE BY SVANDOVO THEATER
Classical Theater
Award-winning theatrical performance.  Two interwoven true stories of Czech Jews, an athlete and an actress, born in Prague, who survived the most unimaginable indignities.  The story of their courage and determination will take you on an unforgettable and heartwarming journey.
