WARIOT IDEAL & PETR FORMAN: THE ILLUSIONIST

An irredeemable theatre lover and notorious amateur actor performs everything a connoisseur of the performing arts desires to see: opera, western, ballet and horror. A historic work by the king of illusions will be seen. A grand performance will come to life before the audience’s eyes.

Genres, characters and costumes switch faster than you can track of, as our hero fails to notice that the prisoner of this world of illusions is none other than himself. With The Illusionist, a one-man cabaret performance by Vojta Švejda, the Wariot Ideal ensemble goes back to its roots, following on from the previous success of solo clown performances Bliss and Albert Is Afraid. The new work is not a simple return to modern pantomime or clowning; rather, it stubbornly creates an eclectic mix of seemingly all existing stage disciplines. Vojta Švedja plays a classic anti-hero who dreams of a role in a big theatre at any cost.
