Human Locomotion

Prague National Theatre

Multimedia project - by Jan Kodet; Laterna magika - The New Scene

The multimedia project of Laterna magika deals with life and works of famous British photographer and inventor Eadweard Muybridge, whose work had crucial impact on development of (not only) photography.

The production which deals with visual art as well as dance was created under the leadership of directors Martin Kukučka and Lukáš Trpišovský (SKUTR) with choreography of Jan Kodet, scenography of Jakub Kopecký and music by Petr Kaláb.

Contemporary dance, physical theatre and impressive visual art mix together in a project that is a tribute to man whose work has had a great impact on the form of visual media until today.

Laterna magika has a lot in common with Eadweard Muybridge’s work – movement, photography, film; those are interference points that connect us with the versatile photographer who invented modern shutter or zoopraxiscope and thus prefigured the era of film.

This theatrical piece draws its inspiration not just from Muybridge’s famous series of photographic studies of human and animal motion but also his life. The team of renowned artists guarantees the quality.
