PRAGUE – Multimedia production company Laterna Magika was rehearsing on Tuesday for its latest show which will mark the group’s 60th anniversary.
Laterna Magika is set to showcase “The Garden,” a multimedia nonverbal theater show featuring spectacular visuals and contemporary dance to mark the foundation of the production company’s 60th anniversary.
According to Laterna Magika, “The Garden” draws inspiration from Czech artist Jiri Trnka’s (1912-1969) illustrations – which depict ethereal scenes from folk stories – combined with the production team and performers memories of gardens in their childhoods.
Laterna Magika was the first ever multimedia theater founded at the 1958 Brussels Expo and later found its home at the National Theater in Prague where it regularly performs its most popular piece “Wonderful Circus.”
“The Garden” runs from Dec. 20-21 at the New Stage in the National Theater in Prague.
