25 November 2017, Švandovo Theatre, Štefánikova, at 7 pm.
We are excited that Azadeh Kangarani - who lectures on television studies in the School of Media & IT - has developed an exciting new multimedia production as part of the theatre festival 'Nad Prahou půlměsíc' at Prague's Švandovo Theatre.
'To Somewhere Else' is a 40-minute-long theatrical multimedia production featuring digital drawings projected live onstage, and live music performed by drum, accordion, trumpet and other instruments that underline dramatic moments of the story. The performers, with their interaction and commitment, complete this 'dance' of incongruous elements.

The story is primarily inspired by the historical events around 1737 when some of inhabitants of Moravia and Bohemia undertook the harsh journey into the exile of the Rixdorf District in Berlin to look for a quiet and secure place and to find basic freedom to live, work and believe in something. It tells the story of liberty, persecution, violence and building up. And of finding the way to the other that leads to the hope everything makes some kind of sense.
There is no language barrier in this nonverbal production. We would love you to enter the multimedia world of Azadeh and her friends. If you would like to come, tickets are available at the link below.
