Puppet theatre showcase for adults - psychedelia, underground and even horror.
Puppet theatre never was and is not just a fun for children. It's a genre that is continuously exploring and remaking the adult world as well, giving birth to interesting experiments and borderline artistic attempts - as scarce and rare those may be. The showcase in Alfred ve dvoře provides a space to explore these liminal areas of the puppet art.
A psychedelic puppet show from the environment of the mystical deep Czechoslovak forests, where reminiscence mingles with hallucination, animals sniff out their prey and two brothers are bound together by more than appears on first impression. The performance makes use of classic marionette puppets, and at the same time also uses elements of object theatre. It represents a combination of traditional and modern principles of animation.
Concept, directors, cast: Tereza Havlová, Veronika Traburová, Jakub Šulík
Music: Adam Páník
The performance originated on the basis of a student assignment to create marionette puppets and scenography at the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU KALD) in 2018. However, the production itself was created later, as a leisure-time project.
