It’s 15 years since the reopening of the Alfred ve dvoře Theatre and the founding of the Krepsko group. FRAGILE first premiered in 2003 and it is to this day in the group’s repertory. It is no coincidence that it first premiered in Alfred ve dvoře and its return is good excuse for a shared 15th birthday party: lets celebrate 15 years of fragility! Those who want to stay late after FRAGILE can also catch Krepsko’s PUNCH AND JUDY PLAY PUPPET THEATRE... Come and join us!


“When you look at the piece of delicately spun glass you think of two things: how beautiful it is and how easily it can be broken…“
Tennessee Williams

FRAGILE explores, through a magnifying glass, the character Laura from Tennessee Williams´s play Glass Menagerie. Through her fragile presence we sink deep into mute yet joyful loneliness. FRAGILE is a visual theatre performance where the theatrical space itself is perceived as a performer. Through meticulous lighting, and almost obsessional details of gesture, we fall to pieces - together with Laura - into shards, which will doubtlessly need putting together again.

“Fragile is a great drama told in miniature, in which each every small movement is refined and fine-tuned. Delight.“ (Dr. Ruth Eshel, Ha’aretz, Israel)
