The man who sold his skin

A Syrian refugee seeking respite from war in Lebanese exile receives a mysterious offer that will allow him to gain the freedom he craves and find his lost love. We'll be showing the film The man who sold his skin in the Evergreen Open Air Cinema.


Together Forever!

Fragments of an absurd mother-daughter relationship appear in a kaleidoscope of situations from other lives lived without recognizing their sense and direction, between fun and powerlessness, narcissism and fear of death.



Cappella Mariana & fama Q

Both Cappella Mariana and fama Q are among the leading ensembles in the Czech Republic. The Contempuls festival will bring them both together for a performance of ET LUX by the living classic of German music Wolfgang Rihm, a piece that draws on both backgrounds.


Meitar Ensemble

For over two decades, the Meitar Ensemble has been at the cutting edge of the world of contemporary music. At their Prague concert, the ensemble will introduce an overview of their core repertoire, as well as a world premiere of a new festival commission by the Czech composer Soňa Vetchá.


Signum Quartett & fama Q

The German Signum Quartett is one of the most dynamic string quartets working today. They are equally at home in classical repertoire and in the most demanding contemporary music, in traditional concert halls and at specialised festival.


AIGEL

AIGEL will arrive in Prague! We still have to wait a few months for the concert of this Tatar-Russian formation, which will perform in the Czech Republic for the first time, and the Czech band WWW Neurobeat, but their rap verses and great beats are definitely worth it!


Sumika

The dance company of award-winning Japanese choreographer and dancer Ruri Mito will present the Czech premiere of its delicate dance performance entitled Sumika. The Ruri Mito Dance Company will appear here as part of its European tour.
