The Tradition of Czech Puppetry:

More than Entertainment

Join us for an evening with Vít Hořejš who will discuss subversive puppet activity over three centuries and demonstrate magic marionette manipulation.  The presentation will be followed by a screening of the award-winning documentary film Faust on a String, which traces the history of the centuries old Czech marionettes--sleeping beauties that came back to life – from Jan Hus Church on Upper East Side in New York City.

Vít Hořejš is the Artistic Director of Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre (CAMT) based in New York City. He is currently working on his next production Duke Oldřich & Washerwoman Božena, the True Story, a non-traditional staging of a traditional marionette play based on the story of love at first sight; and featuring the 11th century Duke who disregarded class boundaries in his marriage but forgot to mention some minor relationship details to his beloved. The show will run in November 2018 at the Jan Hus Playhouse.  Visit czechmarionettes.org for more info.

* Czech and Slovak puppetry has been declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2017.
