At the end of the street, behind a high wall, beyond a rusty gate.

A blackthorn shrub. Wild roses. Tall grass. A rusty stove. The smell of rain. Ants. A gnome. A buried bird. A magnifying glass for kindling a fire. A spleeny tomcat. A tent with a hand torch, a biscuit and car lights on the tarp. A huge bathtub, full of water. Fireflies, pyjamas and a jar of jam. A message buried in the ground. An old plum tree, planted by the grandma. A scythe and bare feet. Wind in the eyes and glowing stones. Grass in a palm and a high whistle. The taste of iron of the tongue and … your memories. There, at the end of the street, behind a high wall and a rusty gate is your garden!

An original project marking the anniversary of the foundation of Laterna magika, a performance inspired by Jiři Trnka’s book of illustrations and the staging team members and dancers’ reminiscences of the gardens of their childhoods.
