Animated Summer on the Roof: LITTLE FROM THE FISH SHOP

One of the first Czech feature films using puppet animation. Deep underneath the sea surface, accompanied by a fish orchestra, the voice of the ocean is telling a story of a fish king and his daughter Little who are forced to move from the sea and open a fish shop. After they set up their business, the king's youngest daughter falls in love with a human.

Rony Plesl: Sacred Geometry

Internationally acclaimed Czech designer Rony Plesl creates a unique glass installation inspired by the idea of Sacred Geometry, a universal language organizing all visible and invisible reality according to basic geometrical principles. The three identical hexagonal glass tree trunks are an artistic expression of this system. Contrasting to their pure minimalist structure is a glowing forest made of uranium glass that emanates a sublime green fluorescent light, reminding us at the same time of branches and flames. In this way, the installation as a whole pays tribute to the key components of glass making – fire and wood.

Theater „Empire of Puppets“

Czech House Jerusalem together with the Czech Centre Tel Aviv and the Embassy of Czech Republic in Israel cordially invites you to the amateur theater „Empire of Puppets“ at the International Arts and Crafts Fair in Jerusalem. Part of the presentation will be also a short performance and workshop for puppet manufacturing. The annual fair, called Hutzot Hayotzer, is one of the Jerusalem’s highlights of the summer, if not the entire year. The festival is a great place to get inspired and purchase art and functionally designed items. Dozens of Israeli and world artists meet at this event, showcasing their creations, selling their crafts and allowing thousands to take in what creative has Jerusalem and the world to offer. The fair is held outdoors at the Sultan's Pool, one of Jerusalem’s most special venues, at the foot of the Old City. This valley and its surrounding areas sit adjacent to the permanent artist colony Hutzon Hayotzer, which gave the fair its name. Visitors can see craft work from watches to hammocks to paintings, often being sold by the original artists, and much more. The festival includes nightly live concerts and dance performances by popular Israeli artists, as well as many food stands and workshops scheduled throughout.
