Dear friends of the Bazaar Festival, after months of hard work we admit defeat today to the (after) effects of Covid and regulations limiting the travel of artists from Russia. Although we are sad we are unable to present legendary AKHE Engineering Theatre of St. Petersburg to you and their magnificent DEMOCRACY this year as planned, with hope in our hearts we summon the supernatural forces of Czech art collective WARIOT IDEAL to open our festival’s WE THE LANDSCAPE edition instead and immerse our audience deep in the origins of ritual by reviving its remarkable performance THE DEPTHS, which too few have yet seen (and those that have know to come back). – Ewan McLaren | BAZAAR


“We’ll definitely be baking a mask! The rest will be assembled on the head and welded together using a red-hot pan. Or glued together with eggs. Then an Assyrian made with snails. And clothes-iron shoes – thus the need for a circuit breaker. A basket-maker and straw-weaver and their tools and musical instruments. Looks like it’ll be a concert, actually! The Old Testament as a source of inspiration and as support for drilling, grating, and blanching. A life-and-death struggle in shouting and hollering. A conflict over three arrows. Sacrifice as a path towards peace. As long as nothing is underestimated. Let us now eat and drink in order to become one with our roots! Our ancestors are our roots. And we are all balls! (Meaning testes)! We love our ancestors, but we regularly underestimate etiquette and overestimate boot-licking. What a shame… Still, if Job could do it, anyone can! Which probably means us as well. But don’t piss off the tree-demon! Or it’ll be the end of us. Depths where even the gods aren’t so special and we humans don’t always make it to the surface in time. And also theatre, dance, sport, or just hanging around.”

“My hot tip for performance of the year… very highly recommended.” – Vladimír Mikulka, Nadivadlo

“As exciting to an audience member who usually attends only classic text-based theatre as it is to a graduate of the Department of Alternative and Puppet Theatre. The company invites everybody into its ritual, without having to explain a thing. In theatre today – and indeed in our society – that is a rare phenomenon.” – Ondřej Škrabál, A2

“The Depths will definitely move you, thanks to both its atmosphere and the room it leaves you to interpret things as you wish. Don’t expect illustrative theatre in a dumbed-down form which answers all the questions of the world, on the contrary! At the end you will be full of questions…” – Veronika Bezvodová, Divá báze

THE DEPTHS has been presented at Divadelná Nitra Festival (SK) and Unidram, Potsdam (DE)
