Hundreds of spectators did not miss an extraordinary performance Modeli da Torino which took place on 15 May at the new building of the Institute of Art and Design. Under the direction of Petr Forman and in collaboration with the students of our school 17 young acrobats from the Italian circus school FLIC performed in a breathtaking show which linked the worlds of fine arts, dramatic arts and new circus. The young artists found inspiration in artworks created by our students and in techniques, materials and equipment used in fine arts. The performance included for example acrobatics on easels, interaction with shadows and projections, balancing on an iron structure/sculpture, non-traditional “fashion show” and many other original and surprising ideas. The building itself, its construction and overall atmosphere played an important role in the performance. That is one of the reasons why this unique performance cannot be transferred to another place. The friends and families of the young acrobats who came from many different countries could watch the results of their work live on the internet.
The performance was created as part of the project Pilsen – European Capital of Culture 2015. It marks the beginning of a new project of cooperation of the Institute of Art and Design with international schools focused on dramatic arts.

Arguably the most important event of this autumn was for the Institute of Art and Design (UUD) the grand opening of our new building, which took place on the 18th October 2012. The program was prepared in collaboration with the project team Pilsen 2015.
