Republic of Figures

Text Information/
Picture Gallery/

Sometimes the artist becomes a sort of unorthodox historian, a story-teller who speaks through an alter-ego, a found or fictional character too traumatic or incomprehensible, one that has been forgotten or has never entered history in the first place. How is it possible to imagine a community of such figures? We enter a space of an alternative history and look at the present as if from awry.

Due to preparations for the upcoming program the show Republika postav (The Republic of Figures) will be closed down Aug 31, one week prior to the schedule, and Sep 4 - 5, you can look forward to the performance "a me" (movement performance: Radim Vizváry, music (conductor, live electronics): Matouš Hejl, libretto/lyrics: Ondřej Buddeus, director Aleš Čermák)
