Performance in a co-production by SRDCE (Heart) Agency and the Josef Kajetán Tyl Theater of Pilsen.
The dance project HEART tells the profound human story of Erika and Sebastian, two medical students. After a carefree study at the university, their paths diverge with time. Sebastian sees his beloved Erika for the last time in the hospital, as her doctor. The work is dedicated to people all over the world who donated their hearts when they could no longer go on.
Heart transplantation is one of the incredible procedures of modern medicine. The weight of fate and the moment when one becomes a heart donor are so emotional that they cannot be described in words. Perhaps music and dance will express the joy but also the sadness and pain that accompany this victory in medical science.
In 2022, 100 years will pass since the birth of the South African cardiac surgeon, Professor CHRISTIAAN NEETHLING BARNARD, who was the first to perform a successful heart transplant in 1967. Despite the fact that more than 50 years have passed since this incredible procedure, transplant medicine is still full of many myths and many questions.
Ballet of Theatre of J. K. Tyl in Pilsen
Prague is full of opera and ballet!
Legendary project of Laterna Magika is a Czech-unique, a show combining elements of film and live acting performances.
Classical principles of non-verbal theatre mingle with dance, film images and black light theatre. The audience is drawn into the story by a panoramically projected image, and fantastic scenes surpass the boundaries between fantasy and reality.
Enjoy the journey to the fantastic world of the Laterna magika, a synthesis of pantomime, dance, music, film and black light theatre.
The building of the New Stage of National Theatre, built in 1983, was tailored to the specific requirements of Laterna magika performances. The unconventional edifice, covered by over four thousand pieces of glass tiles, was designed by Karel Prager.
The diversely shaped glass tiles, created by Stanislav Libenský, form a distinctive relief which gives the New Stage its characteristic appearance. This unique use of glass makes the whole building an original sculptural work of art.
