A mini review by Rovnost
Seven of Brno’s theatres and students from the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts dreamt a Shakespeare’s Night’s Dream on Saturday, during one performance, on the same stage, for seven minutes each. The Polárka theatre ensemble sang, jumped in various strange ways and shouted ‘Finished, the end!’ from behind the fog. However, this was only the beginning. The actors from Brno City Theatre presented the story of Titus Andronicus. Concisely, and in a witty way, they created a short performance which deserves to advance from the qualifying round to the main competition. The theatre faculty kind of froze in The Winter’s Tale, which was almost without words and had a certain forced lyricism, but featured an inventive artistic conception. Only the polar bear had a cauliflower instead of a heart. Or was it a bunch of bananas? The ensemble of Radost theatre fallaciously evoked the impression of a storm and it only became clear what was going on after the question ‘How do you like The Merchant of Venice?’ was asked. Applause. All’s well that ends well. Mahen´s Theatre worked through some historic plays and drew one’s attention to the timelessness of the topic of the incompatibility of morality and politics. Buranteatr depicted a Moor in The Tempest, which is only a fragment of Shakespeare’s as-yet-unreleased masterpiece, Cocoa, chipped off for marketing purposes. After that it was time for Brno City Theatre to perform again: Lady Macbeth’s anger was mixed together with the tones of pop-opera; the ballet numbers showed how much poetry is hidden in Cymbeline. The Goose on a String Theatre showed that, like a woman, Shakespeare also has many faces. The time for kisses, crude scenes and associatively linked images had come. Hamlet wanted to sleep and die and balloons took flight above the illusory structure of the Globe. Fools on a string. HaDivadlo got the most out of the selected topic. There was soil on the table and the mentally torn Richard III subdued Simona Peková in a kingly way. Or did she take control of him? ‘A plague on all of you!’ swore the hybrid creature in his soul. The dream was over and in the name of the father (Peter Brook), the son (Simon Brook) and William Shakespeare, the second Theatre World festival began.
