3. Robert III at the Estates Theater
Prague Shakespeare Company partners with Národní divadlo (National Theatre of the Czech Republic) to present an international English-language collaboration of Shakespeare’s Richard III. PSC Artistic Director Guy Roberts directs and stars as Richard, the man audiences have loved to hate for four hundred years. Deformed in body and spirit, this depraved madman is obsessed with becoming King of England. Does he fall? Of course, but not before he has taken all of us on his wickedly entertaining ride. Performed in English with Czech subtitles.

4. Corporeality 1890–1921
An exhibition dedicated to depictions of the human form between 1890-1921 continues the prior series of themed exhibitions of František Kupka’s work. This particular show focuses on the period when Kupka gradually abandoned the Art Nouveau vocabulary and, using the human body as a testing ground for new approaches, found his path leading to abstract artistic expression.
