Tickets CZK 290 / students and seniors CZK 150 / #Studovna CZK 50 — Tickets available via Archa Theatre and GoOut.cz — Debate with artists after the performance

The performance combines dance and documentary film with the real stories of Chinese dancers. In order to devote themselves to dance and escape expulsion from the countryside, they had to perform in the propaganda ballet Red Women's Battalion, which served the Chinese regime as an instrument of ideological struggle. The memory of the human body still produces powerful images today. Based on technically perfect movement patterns, the outstanding dancers and performers bring to life their memories of the state indoctrination of dance art and reveal how the Cultural Revolution still affects Chinese society today. Concept, direction and choreography: Wen Hui.
Each performance is followed by a discussion with the artists.
