and

JAN 2018 / Nir Ben Gal (IL) and ProART

Our history is full of violence and resistance to oppression. Is violence the only way to resist the oppression? Does a different perspective exist? The violence, oppression and resistance can actually be often seen not only as an external factor of the cruel regime or occupying power, but also in our face, our body, our intentions. Let us try to find a way to love without resistance or aversion – by dancing. An exercise without an oppression. The choreography is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Jan Palach.

“A man must fight against the evil that he is able to fight” – Jan Palach

Choreography: Nir Ben Gal; Music: Philip Glass (Music for Voices, Another Look at Harmony); Dance: Irene Bauer, Martin Dvořák, Alena Pajasová

 

Then also band CONCERTS:

Panoptikum

Underground, Psychedelic Rock

This band is intertwined with indescribable experiences and greedy lease of life. Their music has a distinctive sound and atmosphere…

Science Killer

Psychedelic-garage-drone-blues

Czechoslovakian band operating mainly in Brno. Their debut album LO – FI Lone WoLF, which is as dark and lonely as one’s soul, was released in September.

Science Killer is a perfect example of the drone-blues-garage harmony.

Beps’n’Johnnies

A band, whose music is characterized by psychedelic music of the 60’s and contemporary garage rock. Rich sound and throbbing rhythm contrast with the atmosphere of melancholic music.

PROJECTION of a short movie Invasion, 1968, directed by Karel Čtveráček. The movie sets pictures of a famous photographer Josef Koudelka in motion, capturing Warsaw Pact troops in an invasion of Prague. Musical accompaniment was composed by Ivan Acher.

There will also be an exhibition of resolution, poster and poem duplicates from the streets of Brno of August 1968, whose originals were recently discovered during the moving of Czech Television archive.

The event is also associated with projection of documentary movies “Mrazivá srpnová noc – Brno 1968: Trosečníci z kojálu” and “Brno 1969” in Open-air cinema Brno. Letní kino Brno-střed: červen+červenec

Science Killer

Československá kapela působící hlavně v Brně. V září vydala svoje debutové album
LO – FI Lone WoLF, které je temné a osamělé jako tvoje duše. Science Killer jsou příkladem, jak krásně k sobě ladí drone, blues a garáž.

Beps’n’Johnnies
Kapela, jejíž tvorba má vzory v psychedelické hudbě 60.let a současném garážovém rocku. Hutný zvuk a tepající rytmus kontrastuje s atmosferou melancholických skladeb.
