Starting with the opening of an exhibition of his classic "acoustic drawings" from the 1960s and 70s, the evening will feature a series of performances directly inspired by his visual works, including the premiere of a new performance, 13 Aphorisms – acoustic drawings of Milan Grygar in movement, sound and light. Mr Grygar will be present for this celebration.

Special guests:

Tomáš Vaňek,

Milan Guštar,

Martin Ježek and Petr Ferenc,

Petr Nikl and Miloš Vojtěchovský.

Master of ceremonies: Josef Cszeres.

About 13 Aphorisms:

In 2015 we saw a retrospective exhibition of Milan Grygar, Vizuální a akustické (Visual and Audible) in Prague City Gallery, and strongly inspired by this work we decided to create a performance which would draw from his acoustic drawings and layout scores and would transform Grygar´s principles into a language of the body, sound and light. With thirteen brief interventions we pay homage to the master who celebrates his ninetieth birthday this year.

Sound: George Cremaschi, Petr Vrba

Movement: Kateřina Dietzová, Jana Novorytová

Light: Tomáš Morávek
