(Prague/Czech republic) On 3rd of March israeli theatre ennsemble Clipa will arrive in Prague on behalf of Teatr Novogo Fronta´s 20th anniversary. Just the leading personalities of both ensembles, Dmitry Tyulpanov and Irina Andreeva met in Russia in 1991 whilst creating their common performance Češuja (Slivers) which has reached huge succes in 90´s and so, both of them became the founders of Teatr Novogo Fronta.
„After 20 years in Prague and Dimitry in Tel Aviv, we are meeting again in order to create common project called The Other,“ says Teatr Novogo Fronta director Irina Andreeva and continues: „Our theatrical language is very similar, either me and Dimitry, or the director of project The Other Idit Herman, we all work in non-verbal, physical and visual way.“
Dmitry Tyulpanov met Irina Andreeva in St. Petersburgand both has been acting in same artistic enviroment. After the succes of the Češuja performance, their paths has led them to different corners of the world and both founded their own theatre companies. In the case of Dmitry Tyulpanov it was Clipa Theater, which he founded together with dancer and director Idit Herman and it is settled now in Tel Aviv, Israel. During many years of existence, Clipa has created its very own, incommutable and integral theatrical language and poetics, which is built on strong visuality diffusing trough every element of their performance – from costumes to set and music.
Project The Other started to rise in november 2012 when Irina Andreeva visited Clipa Theatre in Tel Aviv – in atmosphere of weeklong keen-edged conflict bewteen israeli goverment and Hamás movement. Amost significantly, Irina, Dimitry and Idith met each other on the day of first rocket missile attack and shake their hands over the future cooperation the day the ceasefire was signed.
Performance will be an output of mutual cooperation between twosignificant ensembles in their field. Main theme of project The Other, which formally promises to be a brutal grotesque, is violence and its origin in man´s mind and in mankind and society. Another output can be recognised in two-days-long (9th and 10th of March) workshop in Theaterhaus Mitte in Berlin, lead by Irina Andreeva, Dimitry Tyulpanov, Idit Herman and Achilleas Chariskos.

This piece is collaboration between two significant companies in their field – the visual theatre company, Clipa Theater (Israel) and the physical theatre company, Teatr Novogo Fronta (CZ/RU).
With Unarmed Forces is a physical theater piece, based on the concept of object manipulation.
A couple is safely enclosed from the outside world, where an endless war is raging. They are engaged in arguments and fights, trying to conceal the sorrow and mourning of the death of their son at war. Their unhappily ever after is interrupted by an unexpected invasion of an army defector, that quickly destroys all their defenses. The three launch a physical, mental and experimental attack on each other and are pushed to total destruction and chaos, by the spirit of a war – a sad superhero in the shape of a wounded child soldier.
The performers bravely dance into the density of human intolerance, hatred and a desire to make war, not love.
And so, in a massive display of power loss, they compose pictures of rare beauty, that only destruction can display, and hopelessly wraped them in brutal humor.
Artistic team: Directing: Idit Herman Performing: Idit Herman, Irina Andreeva/Alisa Oleinik (from Osobnjak Theatre as a guest), Dmitry Tyulpanov, Achilleas Chariskos

The theatre is an act leaving in the moment of its appearance. Then, it is a concentration on the meeting - right now, right here. It is the awareness of the reason to meet.
The workshop combines the expertise of two significant theatre companies in visual and physical theatre field.
Clipa Theater developed a unique method of exercising and experiencing Performance Art, which is oriented less towards the perfecting of the actor’s skills than towards the actual performance on stage.
Members of TNF teach an original technique developed in the physical theatre company Teatr Novogo Fronta. It can be called a „psychological dance“ and it balances on the boundary of the dance and acting.
The following subjects are emphasized at the workshop:
Abstract and expressionistic movement Solo work, partner work and group work Body, voice and rhythm Working with objects, materials, costumes and space
Who are the leaders? Idit Herman, Irina Andreeva, Dmitry Tyulpanov, Achilleas Chariskos
