Teatr Novogo Fronta and Institute of Amazement - H.I.T.

Thursday 15.7.2021 18:00 / Výstaviště Praha 🕘 45 minutes 👨👨👦 6+

About the file

Teatr Novogo Fronta originates from St. Petersburg, Russia, where this theatre company was founded in 1993 by Irina Andreeva and Ales Janak. Their first works were based on an experiment in the field of the relationship between the artist's body - the only material used by the artist - and the space around it. The first performance, "Vremja Dujak" (Stupid Time, 1994), was presented on their first European tour and its theme was the fear of what the future might bring in Russia. After the success of the production and the whole tour, TNF settled in Prague, where they still prepare and perform their unique productions. The international nature of the company is also characteristic of its current/current composition. The latest projects/productions are realized in collaboration with dancers (performers, actors) from the Czech Republic, Germany, Israel, Russia and Hungary.

The creativity and presentation of TNF's performances is impressive because of both the range and variety, from street theatre and improvised scenes to exciting and directed plays on classical theatre stages. Theater critics have described the work as "hot dance slapstick," "borderline dance," or compared the movement aspect of TNFs butoh. Since its inception, TNF has performed hundreds of shows throughout Europe and beyond.

The innovative approach is also evident in the distinctive approach to the components of the production. Rich symbolism and postmodern intertextuality contribute to the multilayered nature of the productions. The combination of specific, idiosyncratic, formal and thematic aspects of the work is the source of the appeal of TNF's projects, which meet with great acclaim from both domestic and international audiences.

TNF is currently on tour with its latest street production Causa fatalis and the evening street clownery ZERO, not least with Irina Andreeva's new solo performance AUTOMATIC.

About the show

(Deeply Impressive Tashkarice) or the traditional summer desudetadytándle

The forgotten tradition of the medieval "desudetadytándlí" has been taken up by our valiant troupe to bring back to the light of day, under the rays of the sun, the joy of this age-old pastime, when no one is allowed to stand in front of the curtain, whether the nobility or the state throws sticks under their feet, I will still play stories with you. In short: a fairy tale as it should be, where wit, murder and witchcraft, dragon's breath and the vapours of treacherous swamps are not lacking. You'll surely find yourself in tears and laughter. And a little rebellion, from the pen of the masters of Utopia.

About the file

We are a creative team Zuzana Smolová (CZ) and Peter
Gaffney (USA) based in South Bohemia. We are interested in
diverse theatrical techniques, experimenting with
genres, creating theatre that contains intense,
unnamable, irrational elements that
that influence and shape contemporary human experience.
Our work is based on the author's creative process,
that works with the techniques of movement theatre,
puppets, masks, music, text and
experimentation with basic materials such as
clay, sand, water, paper, glass, steel or wood in order to
enriching the movement vocabulary, characters and manner
narrative.
Our performances reflect intense moments of
of capture and escape in an ever-expanding world,
moments that reach beyond the psychological boundaries of meaning.
and intention, moments of transformation from the human to the inhuman,
the analogue to the digital, the living to the inanimate, the self to the
others. Our stories often relate to a person who
undergoing a moral or other crisis, a person transformed
by a general disintegration of the common sense, even
the disintegration of the physical limits that confine our bodies
and the mundane environment.

About the show

Come play with light and shadow! The Shadow Games interactive installation hides various games based on experimenting and interacting with light and shadow, puppets and objects in several mini chapiters.
