The group Fekete Seretlek is reusing, changing and mixing motives from world music and making up its own original compositions. Six musicians-actors graduated from the Prague Theatre Academy (DAMU) are cooperating with production company Studio DAMUZA, which specializes in support DAMU students and graduates since 1999.

Object theatre and concert on motives of Anna Karenina. The performance combines music, cabaret and object theatre presenting original and playful musical compositions that derive mainly from Russian folk. Six expressive actors, six voices, accordion, trumpet, violin, cello, contrabass and an amplified table on which objects are animated to build rhythmical compositions all gently recreate fragments from the novel. A metamorphosis of music and theater, word and movement brings the new theatrical form.

Excellence of seeming simplicity, with which actors create common associative micro-situations using simple objects.
