The Marriage

Part of the the additional programme of Prague Quadrennial 2011.

 

La Fabrika is a unique location in Prague. A former factory in Holešovice, Prague 7 it has been semi converted into a thriving International Arts Centre by its owner Richard Balous. Studio 2 is the unreconstructed factory space, full of atmosphere. The adjacent Gallery is a modern clean well designed art space. La Fabrika is a music and performance venue in Studio 1, as well as a cinema, café, cyber centre and meeting place.

 

In Studio 2 “The Marriage” an interactive installation of 1000 vintage objects created for the performances in 2010 of the chamber opera by Bohuslav Martinů at the Mozart Sal, Reduta Theatre (National Opera Janáček Theatre Brno CZ). Visitors were able to walk through the installation, open cupboards, the fridge, read letters and imagine how the characters, Russian emigres, may have lived in New York in 1950.

 

 

 

The Story of the Wall

“The Story of the Wall” is an artefact taken from the Tricycle Theatre London’s highly successful production of The Great Game 2009/2010 and USA tour 2010/2011. It was conceived for the Society of British Theatre Designers exhibition in Cardiff in March 2011 to respond to the theme “Transformation and Revelation”. It shows how the principal scenographic element - a wall 5 metres high x 13 metres wide built on a simple hydraulic system transformed from an exterior wall to an Afghan Poppy field, following the content of the 12½ hour specially commissioned plays that made up The Great Game. The Carousel was inspired by a photo of an Afghan child in a destroyed landscape going to a fairground and playing with a miniature diorama. Each stage of the Wall is held between the points of a Red Soviet Star, which sits on top of a golden Pentagon. The viewer can turn the carousel. A central pole is painted in the Nuristani style and depicts the life cycle of the poppy, and the carousel stands on a base depicting an Afghan landscape as if seen from the air. It is entirely constructed out of found and discarded materials.
