An experimental yet classical drama and dance piece about mermaids and fairies across cultures and time. An original project of the ProART Company by Lucie Hrochová and Martin Dvořák presented in the unique garden of Villa Tugendhat.
In case of unfavourable weather, the performance is moved to the Moravian Gallery, the Governor’s Palace, Moravské náměstí 1a, 662 26 Brno – Centre.
About the performance (from www.proart-festival.cz)
Ondine: Little Marine Beloved is the first drama piece by Lucie Hrochová. However, Lucie Hrochová is already the author of two books (Friendship from Heaven (2009) and Cognition from Heaven (2011) published by Akcent) and co-author of a theatre performance (Giulietta’s Nights (2019), Studio Marta). The text is based on a play “Ondine” by Jean Giradoux, a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, collected Icelandic legends by Knud Rasmussen and more.
Just as the text references motifs from famous literary works, the music in the production will also cite famous works with similar themes (an electronic remix of works by Antonín Dvořák, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel), yet it will also be a new contribution by composer and DJ Sonorita (Jan Hanák).
The ProART production of Ondine: Little Marine Beloved underlines the multi-genre range of the ProART ensemble, which is increasingly moving from purely dance pieces through dance and movement theatre to experimental forms of originally classical drama.
