Originally inspired by the allegorical transformations of real and imaginary animals in medieval bestiaries, BESTIÁŘ is a movement theater performance that revolves around 150 kg of sculptor's clay, as well as live music, puppetry, and fragments of text, in a dream-like narrative about the human figure confronted by a centuries-old moral crisis.
