The 4+4 Days festival in theatres and barracks
The genres rank from contemporary and provocative theatre, dance and multimedia performances made by artists from Europe, Angola, Algeria, Morocco, Ukraine, the USA, Canada and Ivory Coast to a synoptic exhibition of the most interesting projects in contemporary visual arts, discussions on current topics regarding art, architecture and urbanism, guided walks in Karlín or premieres of site-specific theatre performances of the leading Czech companies – VOSTO5 theatre, Masopust, VerTeDance, or Spitfire Company.
The program also includes the premiere of Nothing Sad, which was made in cooperation of VerTeDance and director Petra Tejnorová. It is a dance play inspired by astronomer Johannes Kepler’s essay On the Six-Cornered Snowflake, which is also a play with energy, physicality and organization.
The festival is the first organization, which opens one floor of Kasárna Karlín (Karlín Barracks) – this year’s festival center. The program is also presented in Archa Theatre, Ponec, Alfred ve dvoře and ALTA Studio. This year’s 4+4 Days in Motion takes place thanks to the cooperation with the Kasárna Karlín cultural center, the Ministry of Justice of the Czech Republic and the Prague 8 district.
