The first appearance of performance Mysterious Lake!!

ファイル 218-1.jpgファイル 218-2.jpgファイル 218-3.jpgファイル 218-4.jpgThe first appearance of performance Mysterious Lake was been on 16th April at the University Stony Brook, NY, USA.

The Order for design and producing of puppet I got from Japanese theatre director Izumi Ashizawa, which lives in the USA now 16 years. Here you can find her biography.The topic of performance about Japanese monster and supernatural beings is for me very interesting. It was not easy to explain to non-Japanese spectators. I started with work in mid-January; twice I flown to New York, I had to communicate a lot with skype and e-mail. I had less time and a lot work. Although I worked hardly every day, I couldn´t see finish, but now is performance on the world and I wish him success!

Mysterious Lake

ファイル 212-1.jpgファイル 212-2.jpgファイル 212-3.jpgファイル 212-4.jpgNow I´m preparing puppets for American performance "Mysterious Lake". On Sunday 8.th March 2015 I came back from the USA, where I stayed at Stony Brook State University (Long Island, NY).

I had to fight with many issues, started with different measurement units (feet) and finished with different material. I prepared in Prague special wooden connectors with inner diameter of 2 cm. But in the local shop I couldn't buy shafts with same diameter! I worked all time without break, I could´t see Manhattan, it was far away and everywhere lie snow!

I´m gonna fly back to the USA at 1st. April, I hope to see New York!
First appearance will be on 16.th April 2015. A lot of work is waiting, but I look forward to be there again!

Winter news

ファイル 207-1.jpgファイル 207-2.jpgNow I’m preparing puppets for performance “The Diary of Anne Frank” and “Mysterious Lake”. Puppets are in human size with different technical details. I hope, I will be able to give off all at time!

During beginning of January we traveled with the director of performance “The Diary of Anne Frank” to Amsterdam, to visit her house “Achterhuis - Secret Annexe”, where she lived in the period 1942-44. The story I knew from books, I saw photos, but reality was stronger. The rooms were been smaller and darker! At beginning I didn’t want to touch topic of Anne Frank, but after reading of The Diary, I was happy for the opportunity to think about life with her and that I could intimately know her thoughts.

In American performance Mysterious Lake mixes present with ancient Japanese time. Here will again live Japanese monsters and mysterious animals. I like very much old Japanese stories and myths. Japanese water sprite “Kappa” or the fox “Inari” are my favorites.
