Out of the numerous options possible, we have taken the one exploring the “situation of women” over the course of time and in theatre. A superlative Czech actress amidst the universe of movement and, at the same time, the universe of men – this too is a manner of trying out at the New Stage genre crossovers and exposing our actors to new challenges.
