Concept Brano Mazuch, Dan Gregor
Directed by Brano Mazuch
This multimedia dance theatre production is based on Václav Havel?s collection of experimental poetry of the same name.
Laterna Magika?s classic and typical use of film footage is replaced in Anticodes by projection and sounds from live sources. The production introduces real-time tracking to Laterna Magika, which detects people or objects in pre-determined zones and turns the stage into a real-time visual and aural reflection of the movement of dancers on the stage.
This production was created for the New Stage of the National Theatre and Laterna Magika by a team of young professionals led by director Brano Mazúch, the author or more than 20 shows in the Czech Republic and abroad. He is joined by multimedia artists Dan Gregor, internationally renowned choreographer Vera Ondra?íková, sound designer Stanislav Abrahám and composer Michal Nejtek. From the ?60s to the 21st century with the press of a single key. The typewriter is replaced by a laptop, ink by light and paper by darkness. The poetry remains.
FREE, but ticketed.
