Four Three Two One (theatre – concert) – Boca loca means mad mouth in Spanish. Boca loca productions are based on plays with words and sounds, rhythm, singing, semi-singing, speaking and semispeaking. Martin Smolka (the co-founder of the AGON ensemble and the autor of the opera Nagano) and Michal Nejtek (composer and pianist who also plays rock and works, for example, with the Plastic People of the Universe) have written “spoken scores” directly for Boca Loca Lab.
About the Boca Loca Lab:
The Boca Loca Lab – A theatre group founded in 2007 by director and author Jiří Adámek. Its purpose is the realisation of stage forms that combine theatre and musical approaches. The distinctive features of the projects created include musically-composed structures, minimalistacting and a specific approach to language (the fragmentation of words, rhythmisation of text, playing with semi-abstract clusters of syllables and sounds). Boca Loca Lab has so far created the following projects: Tick Tock Politics (2006), Click on the Video (2007), Europeans (2008), Territory (2010), Fire (2011), The Twelve Merciful (2012), Four Three Two One (2013), Say Something (2013) and the series of IMPRO Concerts. Tick Tock Politics won the Original Theatre Form Award at the Kontakt festival in Torun, 2009, and the international competition award at the Music Theatre Now festival (Berlin, 2008). Europeans gained the Best Young Director award at the MESS festival in Sarajevo (2012).
