SuperCharada (stand up + concert)
Phenomenal stand-up cabaret theatre from ArtBar Druhý Pád with the title SuperCharada has listened to the people and created a POLITICAL part.
Students and the remainder of the Czech people I recent times have gone onto the streets and made clear their discontent with politics in the Czech Republic. For this reason divadlo Druhý Pád decided to create another part of their phenomenal stand-up cabaret – SuperCharada. This time with a contemporary them – Vox Populi (The People’s Voice). Because we are also not happy with the current political situation and want to speak about it.
We thought up SuperCharada as a cabaret made up of a mix of part humour, part music and an added dose of original themes. Stand-up performances are mixed with nameless songs from a band made up of famous names from the Brno musical scene.
Performers: Radek Petráš, Ivo Krejčiřík, Zuzana Kuricová and Lucie Ingrová
Music: Markéta Tulisová, Veronika Kvedloš Rauchfussová, Lucie Posoldová and Ivo Cicvárek
Presenter: MastaBlasta Arcivévoda ArtBaru Josef Juřík.
The chansons of Chantal Poullain – a deeply placed sexy voice, delicious French, a jazz-oriented band (saxophone Štěpán Markovič, double bass Jan Kořínek and piano Ondřej Kabrna) and the atmosphere of sweet France. Chantal sings both her own songs and also traditional French chansons with her own original charm. Chantal will present her concert in Czech and thanks to her charisma will enchant the audience as only she knows how.

Cikánský Boxer – Filip Teller (theatre)
One-man show about a former boxer, whose memories are heavy in his heart, shrinking it and trying to find a way out. But such a heart cannot shrink for ever … A tale of friendship that was forbidden in the Third Reich.

Divadlo Marvánek – Napoleon (theatre)
How Líšeň became famous, or the truth about Napoleon
Líšeň’s amateur theatre association Marvánek is building on the foundations of theatrical productions in Líšeň. Their mission, unlike their predecessors who were dedicated to the Czech greats and founders, is to produce plays from the Líšeň environment and from Líšeň’s history. Another part of their motivation is to entertain Líšeň’s citizens and to provide them with out of the ordinary cultural experiences. They perform original theatrical works. They produce theatrical comedies and farces from their native Líšeň. The plan of the association is to take themes for their plays only from Líšeň, from Líšeň legends and tales, and from preserved archive materials, of which there is plenty.

The activeness of the performance will appeal to the kids while the humour is intended for the adults and the more attentive members of the audience.

Cirkus jinak: On The Road (acrobatics “on the street”)
A street acrobatics show! That is one way of describing On The Road. A performance involving acrobatic equipment that will take your breath away. The whole tale is told through a mime artist who would like to be an acrobatic and get involved in the show. We will see if she manages …
Illumia – big fire show
When watching the fire show few will be able to avoid holding their breath and having their pulse raised. Fire is a wonderful and dangerous creature. Its brilliance is both inviting and blinding. Its flames both give life and burn.
