A non-verbal comedy in the spirit of Laterna magika that takes on the rapid development of technology and its impact on our lives by means contemporary pantomime, physical theatre, and modern film technology as the essential means of expression. Pluto is the name of a film studio struggling to succeed in the competitive field of motion capture. The technology startup was founded by a group of weirdos who barely understand motion capture. Driven by their enthusiasm and considerable self-confidence, the Pluto artists boldly venture into an industry that is all Greek to them.

 

World-famous Australian mime Trygve Wakenshaw and leading Czech mime Radim Vizváry portray the main characters.

The New Stage

A theatre building constructed in 1983, a stage with a specific dramaturgy. You can see there Laterna magika and Drama performances and a number of other original projects.

 

The New Stage today

 

After a period of 18 years independence (1992–2009) when the New Stage served as home stage for e ensemble Laterna magika, the New Stage became part of the National Theatre in January 2010, so did the Laterna magika ensemble.

 

The New Stage of the National Theatre serves nowadays as an open space for performing arts with its separate management, a separate managerial unit within the National Theatre. The programming focuses primarily on contemporary cultural trends. The spotlight is aimed at contemporary dance, progressive drama alternatives, interactive performances, urban culture phenomena, multimedia projects, family programs and more. The New Stage has been since January 2010 playing an active part at the cultural scene in Prague providing the original concept of creative artistic institution within the structure of National Theatre.

 

The New Stage is open to both Czech and international audience and the programming meets the needs of both audiences. The repertoire of the New Stage can be divided into three parts: performances  by the Drama and Ballet Ensemble of the National Theatre and performances by the artistic ensemble Laterna magika. The remaining third of the repertoire is devoted to international guest performances, local and international co-productions, emerging artists in theatre and visual arts, contemporary dance, workshops, conferences, festivals and other accompanying programs. The repertoire of the New Stage includes also a wide-range of special projects and one-off events that take place both in the New Stage building as well as the piazzeta of the National Theatre.
