The choreographer Jan Kodet and the stage directors Martin Kukučka and Lukáš Trpišovský, forming the SKUTR tandem, have brought to bear their fascination with food and present to the audience a dance-theatre production, in which they lay bare the subject at a variety of levels, seriously or with humour and hyperbole. They whet the appetite, tickle the senses, yet they also raise questions. The ebullient Laterna magika and the Czech National Ballet dancers, clad in Simona Rybáková’s costumes, enliven Jakub Kopecký’s austere, stark scenography. The production is adorned with Ivan Acher’s contemporary music, with each scene unfurling in a different style, occasionally interspersed with singing.
Laterna magika has always been a company given to making creative use of space and experimentation. Bon Appétit! affords scope to a new experiment, in which Laterna magika join forces with the Czech National Ballet. Come and savour the splendid dance performances of the members of the two companies.
The production has been created in collaboration between Laterna magika and the Czech National Ballet.
