Café Godot – Two Pots

An endless Dada café of loneliness. Men and women, together and alone, in futile expectations of something. Men turn into women, women turn into men; repeating gestures, absurd fragments of sentences. Michaela Pavlátová’s pun originated in pure joy of unhinged creativity that followed the completion of her feature film My Sunny Maad.

Divadlo Kordula: Little Red Riding Hood

40 min | ZDARMA / Free Entry

A hand puppet adaptation of the classic fairy-tale. Two actresses perform the story of Little Red Riding Hood – but each in a different way. The drama needs to be toned down, however, and it’s necessary to get some laughs. The reaction of the audience (children and grown-ups as well), reciprocated by the actresses, turns the performance into a unique experience. The performance is staged by two theatres – Bořivoj from Prague and Kordula from Liberec. 
 
The 40-minute performance is suitable for children above 3 years of age.

60 min

A Prague-based rap duo you know from their LP Expedice do vnitrobloku (2019). Creeping out of the depths of prop storage to trap you in the rhythm of sub-bass brass. The trap is two-fold. One side is reinforced by steel rods and shaft hole echoes, the other was forged by Sudetenland and hardened by rap. A twisted response to the current emptiness of the Czech rap scene by two guys who met at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and had a feeling they ‘needed to do something together’.

Naivní divadlo: Kuba and Markyta + The Three Threadmakers

50 min | ZDARMA / Free Entry

Kuba and Markyta

Using several puppets, actress Markéta Sýkorová illustrates the ridiculous behaviour of a stupid boy named Kuba who tries to follow his mother’s advice, but always messes things up. Kuba is to marry Markyta and bring her a present, but he misunderstands his mother’s advice and does something dumb again. This triggers a chain of advice and the nonsensical following of it, which is hilarious for children, as even the smallest child is cleverer than our Kuba. 

The 25-minute performance is suitable for children above 3 years of age.

The Three Threadmakers

In addition to the legendary performance Kuba and Markyta, which has been in the repertoire of Naivní divadlo Liberec for more than 20 years, the troupe has introduced a new ‘Grimmesque’ fairy tale, The Three Threadmakers in 2010. In this piece, the dumb Kuba is replaced with a very lazy girl. The current performer of both pieces, Markéta Sýkorová has written a fairy-tale anecdote about laziness and promises unfulfilled (once again inspired by the Brothers Grimm).

The 25-minute performance is suitable for children above 3 years of age.
