The adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, Dokola, which sold out when it premiered in May 2012, is back between February 12th and 16th
Dokola is an intimate tale of connection (and disconnection) surrounding the intertwined sexual relationships of ten unique individuals living in modern day Prague. A Broad’s Way Productions’ biggest show to date, Dokola has a unique and updated perspective, which effortlessly marries theatre, film, dance and original music to explore these ten diverse relationships.
Director Jay DeYonker, says, “When ‘La Ronde’ was first conceived in 1897 it was banned for its raw content. With our adaptation, we have challenged ourselves to explore similarly controversial, yet highly relevant themes surrounding the sex lives of Prague’s diverse community.”
Dokola had an international writing team to update the famous script and features a full cast of Czech and international, non-native English speakers, intimate dance segments by internationally trained, Czech choreographer Dagmar Spain, original music score by composer Jan Fisher (violinist with the popular Czech band ‘Zrni’), and Prague Film School filmmaker, Linus Ignatius who has incorporated elements of film in this colourful round. All of these elements are brought together by American director, Jay DeYonker.
