The production Robot Radius was created in collaboration with the Office of
the Commissioner General for the Participation of the Czech Republic in the
Dubai EXPO. It is inspired by Karel Čapek’s sci-fi drama R.U.R., premiered a
The legacy of the great writer and humanist is brought to life on our stage
through the prism of 21st–century artists. Blending multimedia and physical
theatre, the production is a truly mesmerising spectacle. The minimalist scenery
is dominated by huge industrial panel. The production applies innovative
approaches, primarily the motion capture technology, with a suit that is part of
a costume, which makes it possible for us to represent the
performer’s movement in real time, and work with interactivity instead of
pre-filmed projections. This type of motion capture has not been used at any
other Czech theatre. Directed by Miřenka Čechová, the solo project features
the mime artist Radim Vizváry, whose performance on stage is accompanied by the
guitarist Michal Pavlíček.
“For our megalomania, for someone’s profits, for progress, I don’t
know for what tremendous things we have killed humanity.”
