MILAN SLÁDEK (SK): STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Milan Sladek is one of the most reknown mimes of both Czechoslovakia and the world, who but rarely returns to his homeland after the emigration from communist regime in 1968. The performance in Polička is a unique chance to see this great artist in one of his most subtle shows – Stations of the Cross – in which he impersonates Jesus Christ on his last fourteen stations before the crucifixion.
A challenging topic in Sladek’s non-traditional performance promises strong cultural and spiritual experience, which is enhanced by the venue of this event – St. Michael Church. Sladek’s suggestive pantomime combines European traditions with the ancient movement arts of South-Eastern Asia. Do not let this special chance to pass!
