The fundamental characteristics are: the absence of gravity, the slowness, the solitude, the heroism, the despair… and mostly the desire to dream.
Family show: suitable for adults and children 8+ years
Duration: 60 minutes without intermission
Place: Spaceship, Smíchovská náplavka
Due to the great success and demand for the spaceship at the ARENA festival, we have brought back the performance of Juri. Juri is an intergalactic explorer who discovers new planets and perhaps new forms of life; he’s a brave man, a hero, he’s an interstellar cosmonaut!… or maybe this is what people see in him… but Juri is also a man who’s afraid, who dreams, Juri is still a child; instead of finding it, he very often loses his way; Juri is a lonely man, Juri is a clown.
As an audience (maximum 45 people) you are a special crew selected for this adventure. In a spaceship you will experience a wide and endless universe first hand. And Juri will accompany you, ignoring the danger! You will know the astronaut’s daily routine – a pretext for ridiculous clownish situations.
In this show Giorgio Bertolotti and Petr Forman wanted to explore the world of video mapping, a large and stimulating challenge especially for the desire to integrate it into the storytelling and to interact directly with it.
