The southernmost city in the EU. The island on which Calypso held Ulysses prisoner for seven years. At one point, it had more than 8000 inhabitants, but erosion and the depletion of natural resources – particularly water – led to a dramatic decrease in population. Most of the visitors are adventurers who come here to “find themselves”. Like Jamie, whose relationship with Julia has run its course. The heat in Greece is truly extreme, wildfires are common, and Julia arrives to try and awaken for the last time the nearly extinguished emotions between her and Jamie. They decide to try a strange experiment. A corpse is found by the roadside. Climate change has fatal effects on people’s behaviour. How was your summer?

Guardians of the Civic Good 2
A peculiar family of five has been all ablaze with the presidential election, from January to December 2018. The family conflict reveals diametrically opposing views of the last 30 years of Czech politics. What is the legacy of the “golden” 1990s? Why did the losing candidate, Jiří Drahoš, go quiet? Why does Marie want to divide queers into rich and poor? Does work take people’s money? What silenced voice does Michal want to support, and how will the situation with grandma pan out? Eight years after the publication of the eponymous novel to which this play by Petra Hůlová is an autonomous sequel, this dramatised description of Czech society “in the eyes of the defeated” gets a new and ruthless urgency.
Script: Petra Hůlová / Dramaturgy: Matěj Samec / Director: Adam Svozil / Sets and costumes: Ján Tereba / Production: Magda Juránková / Acting: Zuzana Ščerbová, Natália Drabiščáková, Tomáš Petřík, Zoja Oubramová, Vladimír Pokorný
Juli Zeh: Dark Matter
An unconventional detective story in which both the culprit and his motive are known to us from the very beginning. The worlds of two leading physicists who differ drastically from one another: while one of them believes in the causal approach to life, the other is an adherent of the many-worlds interpretation.
