Contemporary interpretation of Wilde's legendary novel. We have everything and that is everything we have.

Dorian Gray. A charming young man with unique gift to influence others. He desires to use every oportunity of this world and experience all its pleasures. He throws himself into his own chasm and takes everyone with him regardless of the past, the future or the people around. Who would not want to live here and now — forever? Behind Dorian's forever-young innocent face there is a terrifying secret...

Wilde's famous novel as a contemporary theatrical parable about desperate grope in the dark of those who do not deal with how to survive but how to live. About us who seek fulfilment in time in which everything is possible and us who so often yield to "Experince your own life!".

A classic from 1891 directed by Martina Kinská with Miřenka Čechová's choreoraphy and Vladimír Franz's music.
