Introduction to the Laterna magika principles and magic.
The evening is a representative display of various subjects and artistic practices, which are used by Laterna magika in its performances. It enables viewers to get to know many different approaches and maybe help them to decide what type of performance to visit next. We pick up selections from past almost historical as well as present, e. g. Variations from 1963 (the famous Breakneck Ride), Casanova, Graffiti, Puzzles, Legends of Magic Prague and many more..
Programme includes a short revue Code 58.08, which was created to celebrate 50 years of Laterna magika in 2008. Code 58.08 is a small sight into way, in which film or digital technology can hand in hand with choreography work in the imagination of young generation. A little bit of "retro", peek off-stage or, small walk through some places connected with the history of Laterna magika and many more, together with a couple of dancers, who will guide you through the entire performance.
