PERFORMANCE AND LIVE CINEMA
Live audiovisual performance KittyInTheGarden is a journey into the core of hardware and software, connected in real time with animation and space sound. The used technology, together with animations that blur the line between the virtual and real worlds, will take you to imaginative, fantastic landscapes and intuitive mental spaces created as a game and music application. They reflect author’s approach to exploring locations, development, and collecting data.
The performance for the SPA series invites spectators to Invalidovna where a live, site-specific cinema is set up. It builds on Jakub Krejčí’s long-term performance project, KittyChaosPlanet. A discussion will follow the performance, offering a deeper understanding of the event and reflection on the shared experience of the performance.

● In 2021, all events at ALTA are free! ●
During the pandemic, we did not have the opportunity to meet you in person and open ALTA to the general public. Now that we can do it, we want to be even closer to you. We decided that we would not collect any entrance fees for our programs in 2021, so that really everyone could come. Culture to all!
