The latest multimedia plays the main role in a visual and dance production based on Václav Havel’s collection of experimental poetry of the same name. See the Laterna magika of the 21st century at the New Stage of the National Theatre!
Laterna magika’s classic and typical use of film footage is replaced in Anticodes by projection and sounds from live sources. The production introduces real-time tracking to Laterna magika, which detects people or objects in pre-determined zones and turns the stage into a real-time visual and aural reflection of the movement of dancers on the stage.
The production was created for the New Stage of the National Theatre and Laterna magika by a team of young professionals led by director Braňo Mazúch, the author or more than twenty shows in the Czech Republic and abroad. He is joined by multimedia artists Dan Gregor, internationally renowned choreographer Věra Ondrašíková, sound designer Stanislav Abrahám and composer Michal Nejtek. From the ‘60s to the 21st century with the press of a single key. The typewriter is replaced by a laptop, ink by light and paper by darkness. The poetry remains.
