The Radiant City
„The future is not what it used to be“
What it is to live someone else's dream?
In the late 1920s when visionary architect Le Corbusier proposed his concept for "the ideal city for three million people", it represented an utopian dream to reunite man within a well-ordered environment. This reunion turned into reality in post-war Czechoslovakia (and all Eastern Bloc countries) with the massive construction of prefabricated housing estates inspired by modernistic avant-garde urban planners.
Three actors, three videos and three soundtracks: the experimetal site-specific performance
"The Radiant City" is questioning the issues of collective cohabition and "utopian realities" of past and today.
The future is not what it used to be.
