Forman 'ship-theater' sets sail on the Vltava

Following the success of their play Bouda-La Barraque in Belgium and in France, Petr and Matej Forman - the twin sons of the famous film director Milos Forman - have undertaken a new challenge. They've created a performance on a converted barge which they call a 'ship-theater', moored on the banks of the River Vltava.
