 PERFORMANCE     Czech Republic


Performances in Repertory  by  Laterna Magika    

The ensemble company presents six creations in repertory in their non-verbal style using pantomime and other visual elements. (See website for current performance schedule.)

Part I explores the common thread of imagination in different arts. Part II "tells a little story which, unfortunately, happens over and over again."

This performance will let you venture beneath the colorful surface of the modern characters and symbols, being part of the pulsing urban expansiveness. Let yourselves be drawn into dynamic image animation and modern choreography in human stories taking place underneath that surface.

A telling of Homer's The Odyssey in Laterna Magika's non-verbal style using pantomime and other visual elements.

The Trap
The theme of this show examines the attractiveness and dangers of the so called "virtual reality."

Wonderful Circus
Comedy fairy-tale about "good and evil, love and hate, strength and weakness, happiness and sadness and at last wisdom and the understanding of what is really important in life."

An interpretation of the life of Giacomo Casanova, legendary seducer of women.

Ongoing performances. See Program for upcoming dates. Prague 1 Laterna Magika theatre Website in Czech and English
