More about ANTIWORDS:
Summer success of the „Theatre newspaper“. Influenced by the play of Vaclav Havel – Audience.
Antiwords was premiered in Washinghton at Mutual Inspiration festival and its Czech premiere was in November 2013 in Palac Akropolis.
Influenced by the works of Václav Havel, especially his play Audience and its legendary film adaptation, in which the role of the brewer was played by Landovský with his ability to drink nine pints of beer while in character. Will Miřenka Čechová and Jindřiška Křivánková outdo the legend? Will they reach a state on the edge, recalling Havel's motif of alienation and Hrabal's poetics of loneliness? Aside from the two actors, major roles are played by oversized heads authored by sculptor Paulina Skavova, and by Sivan Eldar's music composed specifically for this performance.
This performance received „Summer success“ of the theatre newspaper and „Project of the year award“ by the festival Next Wave.
“Dancer-actors Miřenka Čechová and Jindřiška Křivánková, along with director Petr Boháč, have made a radical contribution to the discussion about how to perform Havel's plays today.” (Marie Resslová, Hospodářské noviny)
