Price:£8 (£6 con)

Presented by Divadlo 6-16: Prague (In association with Menagerie)
Written and performed by MILENA STEINMASSLOVÁ

(In Czech with English surtitles)

Untitled is the moving story of HE and SHE written and performed by famous Czech actress Milena Steinmasslová.

SHE is a former acrobat and clown. Her career ended by a stroke.  SHE now lives alone in a caravan on the outskirts of the city.

HE is a typical son of the border town in the Czech Republic. HE is without work, without education, without opportunity, living as a petty thief.

One day their paths cross and two people, seemingly without a future, spend a few magical moments together.

A performance of poetry and movement presented with a minimum of words, yet full of acrobatic etudes. A story of isolation and the fear of loneliness, it is nevertheless full of hope, desire and humour: humour as a superstructure of thought. Humour as a leak before thinking.

Untitled is a world premiere performance presented by two actors and one musician.
