About the projectčesky / english news
The longterm programme of Divadlo Kámen consists in staging of plays freely inspired by the most recent works of Czech literature. With the My Brother the Messiah project, we create and perform theatre based on the novel of the same name by the Czech writer Martin Vopěnka.
In our opinion, the question “Who is the (a) messiah in our days” is the connecting line of the overall project. How can we recognise him? How can(’t) we help him, assist him? We approach these questions from various points of view. Theatre is essential, however, several other disciplines are also involved:
The theatre includes brief intermezzi performed by guests invited for the particular evening – either theoreticians (psychologists, sociologists, politicians, ...) or artists (dancers, musicians, writers, ...) dealing with diverse aspects of existence of the messiah and his/her influence on us in a broad sense.
We work together with the Norwegian artistic (prevalently dance) group Haugen Produksjoner and other direct project partners from diverse social and national environments including minorities. Their involvement in the piece itself, which is constructed for this type of action, provides us an opportunity to explore and compare various attitudes, views, opinions, approaches, stories and behavioural patterns associated with our central topic. In addition to performances, we also organize discussions and share opinions and ideas. In this way, both we ourselves and the audience clarify many notions and raise many questions.
Joint efforts together with our Norwegian and other partners also bring to the creative community around Divadlo Kámen the sharing of joys and sorrows in cultural entrepreneurship, which is more than interesting today, during both official workshops and informal discussions and debates.
