Iva Bittova & Abraham Brody @ Vortex
Musicians Iva Bittová and Abraham Brody come from different traditions but with the same feeling and raw energy for performance. Improvisation and spontaneity play a large part in their solo work, as well as their collaborations, and together at Vortex in addition to their solo sets, they will perform a set of live duo improvisations in the spur of the moment, exploring all the possibilities and dimensions of the violin and voice.
Three Wishes for Cinderella
One of the most beloved films in all Eastern European cinema, Václav Vorlíček's reworking of the classic Cinderella tale is both delightful and unconventional. Deviating from the original story, yet retaining an air of real magic and beauty, Three Wishes for Cinderella takes the familiar fairytale and invests it with a feisty and rebellious Cinderella who - far from being some passive beauty - rides a horse, knows how to hunt and actively pursues her handsome Prince.

Love, sex and marriage…with a robot?
Designers are producing robots that are increasingly human-like in appearance and actions. From sophisticated machines we can chat to, through to lifelike sex robots, these creations have the potential to change how humans date, have sex or fall in love. But do we really want – and need – artificial companionship? Join us for an evening of activities, from talks to film screenings, as we explore the future of romantic relationships.
