COMEDY ABOUT DEVIL'S TOILS

Marek Pivovar

Premiere Jun 12, 2010, 7.00 PM - Jiří Myron Theatre

Breezy slapstick with songs from baroque times.

logoInformace

If we say folk baroque theatre first thing on our mind will be plays about (e. g. About St. Dorothy) or about crucifixion of Jesus Christ. However, ordinary people of that exciting and wild era created also unserious plays, comedies, although the sacred themes were present too. We have prepared a production which derives right away from several folk comedies. The virtue of these plays is beautiful colloquial language (it was namely written in “Czech foul spoken language by us, commons”), quickly running plot, wit, hyperbole, joy of life. You will also hear live many well known as well as forgotten folk songs, accompanied by a live band right on the stage. We don’t know how our efforts will be accepted, yet: “We beg you humbly for peaceful silence as well as good patience. As soon as we learn the philosophy we will say something sharp to nobility. If you don’t like it make it, don’t swear and make it better by yourself."
