Karolína Kotrbová, Gašper Lovrec, Filip Mramor, Jernej Potočan, Domen Novak: 410 KILOMETRES


The performance 410 Kilometres is a love letter to the sea, to holiday time, to big ideas and to the people we wish to spend our time with. It is a story of bridging the gap between Czechia and Slovenia, or perhaps Czechia and the Adriatic Sea. With their paths crossing in the Prague and Ljubljana academies respectively, this young team’s creative arena lies at the crossroad of object theatre and devised theatre, delving into music composition and bringing together the utterance of personal story and fiction. 410 Kilometres tells the story of the Czech architect Karl Žlábek and his ambitious plans for a tunnel securing sea access for the Czech in merely four hours, the story about the kids icon Little Mole turning into a national hero, the story about a little olive tree in Czechia and its fight for survival … actually a story (or a few of them) reminding us of how important it is to have a dream. We must never allow our dreams to be taken away. As the Slovene-Czech alliance reminds us in its pursuit of artistic cooperation beyond national borders: We should never give up on chasing an expanded horizon of imagination, possibility and dreams. We must, over and over again, choose courage and think a better world.
