Action art, demon raising, plate armor sabatons, the dreaded forest king, curatorial work as music, live outsider art… The Bible as inspiration as well as a foundation to be undermined…
An open performance art studio, where the manual production of props in preparation for a performance of Hlubiny / The Depths loosely progresses into an uncontrollable performance…
The obliteration of expectations of what an exhibition, a concert, or theatre should be… Is this truly a working effort, or only an alcoholic evening enjoyed by the members of the Wariot Ideal creative collective?
It is definitely not anything you would want to see your neighbors doing.
Wariot Ideal has been an important player on the Czech alternative art scene since 2009. This creative collective has produced many unique works, all of then containing striking visual and musical components. The group’s works are created for both adult as well as child audiences, and its home base is the Alfred ve dvoře (Alfred in the Courtyard) Theatre in Prague. Wariot Ideal regularly participates in important festivals, and their productions are also presented abroad. The creative collective has a fixed composition. The key player is the original actor and mime Vojtěch Švejda, who in the past has worked with the National Theatre. He was nominated for an Alfréda Radok Award in 2009, and, in 2012, received the Czech Theatre DNA Award for his outstanding representation of original Czech theatre abroad. The other members of Wariot Ideal comprise Jan Kalivoda, who is a musician and composer, and the author of the music for many of the collective’s productions, the lighting designer, scenographer, and amateur filmmaker Jan Dörner, and the production manager Milena Dörnerová. Together, they focus on creating original works, including not only improvised programs, movement theatre, pantomime, and physical theatre, but also feature-length drama performances.
