Švanda's theater cuts stereotypes in the new season. With Husak children and terrorists

The Smichov scene is going to be five premieres from September this year to June next year. In a varied program, the world classics will be presented from a different perspective, the original author's production and small Czech stories unfolding against the background of great dictatorships.

Besides the Oscar Wilde, Friedrich Schiller, or the Husak children's generation, Švandy will also focus on the media and terrorists, as Heinrich Böll described in the 1970s. And it will shine on the controversial moments of our history. According to the creators, the audience can look forward to strong stories in their own way.

Bourat stereotypes

Even in the forthcoming new theater season, Švanda's theater will be accompanied by a common theme. Her motto is "see differently / see new", and that's what the Smichov scene will try with the forthcoming productions. As Martin Kinská, a tribute dramaturge, explains: "We will continue to stereotypes. We want to see a well-known work or ubiquitous phenomenon different from what is usual, " adds Kinská, who is also a successful author and director: her production, Pankrác '45, is among the most sought-after titles at Švandy.
It is precisely the controversial moments of Czech history and the classical theatrical texts with overlapping to the present day that the theater actors in Smíchov want to dedicate themselves after the holidays. "We will try to interpret classical works in a striking way, and to get into their interpretative stereotypes, which often dampen the work and delay the viewer. We are betting on stories that resonate with us and in our country, " says Dodo Gombar, Director and Art Director of Švanda's Theater. "We strive for a personal and individual view," said Gombar, an experienced theater author and director.

Little human tragedies in times of great dictatorships

The season begins a confrontational drama titled Breaking Bread , which will make audiences domestic events from the post-war era to the Velvet Revolution. The original play of the playwright Josef Holcman (known as, for example, the author of the novel The Price of the Rock) is based on real events in South Moravia and its self-reflection after 1989. The story of friendship that has been in the history of great history will be premiered in the Great Hall on October 21 2017 directed by Doda Gombar . "Josef Holcman leaves us with a very open look at the family chronicles so that we can explore our own history again," says Gombar, adding: "Our theater is the first writer of the novelist - a novelist."

Natalia Kocábová for Švanda's theater corresponds to another play that may appear on the repertoire this season. In the November Stage Interview, she will be asked by the moderator David Hrbek, as this author will be the guest of a live interview, which will take place on November 15 in the Švandova Theater Study, and which the audience can actively participate in.

Hunt for experience

Another premiere will be Oscar Wilde's classic of beauty and its aging glare The Picture of Dorian Gray directed by Martina Kinská. Here Wilde's art attracts the theme of desire for eternal youth and endless enjoyment, but also the possibility of transcending the traditional drama of the story. This is why the well-known dancer and performer Miřenka Čechová will take part in the concept of the production. "To be" to experience "for most of our society, to provide a constant supply of stimuli and excitement. And so the dependence on hunting experiences at any price is becoming. But where is the border beyond which it can not go without consequences? " Asks the director for a production that will be presented to her at the premiere on February 10, 2018 at the Grand Hall .

Youth and love, maturity and profit

The third novel, featured on the big Smichov stage, will be the production of the top work of the German classic Friedrich Schiller The Stories and Love . Director Martin Františak sees it as a clash of the power of pure emotion and the terrible disillusionment as a necessary part of maturity. A very recent game about the collision of generations tells of young love trapped in a network of relationships, pulling in the wires of reason and profit.
The first release is scheduled for May 26, 2018 at the Grand Hall.

Who's the terrorist here?

He is also returning to the studio of Studio ŠD as a director as co-author David Šiktanc. Dramaturgy with Vladimir Čepk, the dramaturgist, has chosen the world-famous novel Lost honor of Catherine Blum of another German giant Heinrich Böll. The story of the title heroine describes the cruel media lynch to which she is exposed, so almost no one in her neighborhood believes her. Articles and reports give her everything possible, including links to a terrorist organization. Everything takes place in the backdrop of a carnival where people dress up for sheiks and bedouins while the missing bomber is not found ...
"In a situation where the Deputy Prime Minister actually owns a media house when a member of the Senate is involved in the unclear ownership of a major disinformation site, when the emergence of an office to fight these misinformations seems to be a bare necessity, Catherine Blum's story may serve as a stepping stone a bridge to reflect on what information is and how it affects us, " says David Šiktanc.
The premiere is planned in the Studio Study on November 11, 2017.

After work, fun or "Pelíšky" did not take place

Following the productions of Gottland and the Indifference of Earth, which reflected the different stages of Czech history, the Smíchov repertoire will expand the production of Daniel Hrbek and Paul Holý entitled Husák's Children in the new season. Eighties of the last century: is it a time of nostalgia, pink memories, the impulse to clear up with your own past or perhaps a little bit of it? What have we all experienced with the sounds of standardization hits and socialist shows? Was there any "Pelíšky" at that time, to what extent did the "schizophrenia of the soul" sign up to us and what is the price we still pay for seemingly harmless slogans like "After work fun"?
The audience of the underground studio will see Husak's children premiered on April 28, 2018.
