Event Description

Performance: Fear and Love / Every soul deserves a home by Jessica Litwak

Brno, Kavárna Trojka, February 21, 2017, 20:00

U.S. Embassy Prague is pleased to announce that seasoned American theater director, playwright, and actress Jessica Litwak will present a multi-city project in the Czech Republic exploring the fear of difference and the impact of changing communities.

New York City-based Jessica Litwak will present her socially engaged theater project in Prague, Brno, České Budějovice, Pilsen, and Ústí nad Labem over a three-week period in February and early March. Her project, which includes several Czech actors, is focused on theatrical exploration of the subject of fear, particularly of those different than ourselves.

In addition to conducting multiple workshops and lectures, Jessica will direct and present a performance of her work, Fear and Love /Every Soul Deserves a Home, which reflects on the fundamental issues and fears that may exist among the local population as a response to newcomers in their communities.
