Laterna Magika to return to Expo 50 years after its premiere

Fifty years after its debut, the legendary Czech experimental theatre revolution, Laterna Magika, is due to return to the Expo exhibition next week with a show called Robot Radius.

The production, created for the New Stage of the National Theatre, is based on Karel Čapek's play Rossum’s Universal Robots and premiered in Prague in September this year.

The revolutionary concept of Laterna Magika, which combines black light theatre, film and dance, first appeared at the Expo 1958 exhibition in Brussels has since performed all around the world, including New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Summer Olympics in Athens.
