Amateur? No problem. Welcome on the stage!

Amateur? No problem. Welcome on the stage!

Kateřina Milatová, twenty-year-old amateur actress, singer and student of English, looks happy when she is talking about theatre “I'm not a liar if I say that my personal experiences and feelings are mostly positive, I can say that I've been playing the theatre for a long time and I'm glad for it. The thing which I really appreciate is that I can see the backstage or in general the background of each drama.” It is interesting, there are so many people who have to cooperate - technicians, lighting electricians, wardrobe mistress, sound engineer, prompter and of course a director, people who are not visible but who fundamentally influence the play.

Mobster found friends during killing

Mobster found friends during killing

I am approaching the passage. It is a cold winter night. I am finally coming to the agreed-upon place. He is standing there and smoking a cigarette. Should I worry? After all, he is a murderer. This year, he has been responsible for seven murders. Just this year.

The Krampus Parade has expanded to Moravia

The Krampus Parade has expanded to Moravia

It seems like hell has come on earth – the clank of metal chains and apocalyptic music brings out of red smoke the most macabre and disgusting creatures. You smell sulphur and animal stench. Do you really believe the roadblocks will protect you?

Was Alan Turing human or a machine, was genius or a weirdo? Morten Tyldum seeks the answer in his movie The Imitation Game

Was Alan Turing human or a machine, was genius or a weirdo? Morten Tyldum seeks the answer in his movie The Imitation Game

From the film The imitation game

 Do you realize that there were many war heroes who lived among us and we do not know anything about that? Are the ways how Allies won the war in 1944 clear or is it just an uncovered secret? I had no idea how many things were hidden under surface until I saw Morten Tyldum´s wartime drama based on the life of Alan Turing – the mathematical genius, the cryptanalyst and the founder of modern computer science who lived between 1912 – 1954.

Green Day's Revolution Radio is going back to the roots

Green Day's Revolution Radio is going back to the roots

Four years after the release of the trilogy ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!, Green Day are returning with their self-produced album Revolution Radio. The total length of the album is 44 minutes and 29 seconds. It's their twelfth studio album. Last year they were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's hard to believe that they are in the business for more than 25 years and they still have something new to offer to the audiences.

Astrid & Veronika, Linda Olsson, 2005

Lots of people read books which make them feel relaxed. Other readers like something more complicated, stories which teach us something about the world. In some cases these two points are combined which, I think, is great. Astrid and Veronika is one of these readable novels with a spirit.

The Phantom of the Opera Enchants Prague: a musical legend in Czech production

It is never really easy to take a legend and transform it from the comfort of movie studios to the hard reality of theatre stage. That is why the news of a Czech production of this legend, based on Gaston Leroux’s book which slowly made it into the shelves of “classics”, filled me not only with hopeful expectations, but also with a kind of fear. Is anyone able to transform Webber’s Phantom of the Opera to our country and do it justice?

Český špion Erwin van Haarlem/Czech spy Erwin van Haarlem (2005)

The book Czech Spy mediates hitherto little known information and primarily incredible story from the Cold War days. At the first sight we see that name Erwin isn't typical Czech name.

Review: The Girl on the Train (USA 2016)

Review: The Girl on the Train (USA 2016)

This movie, which is based on book from Paula Hawkins, shows how can be people evil, vicious and desperate. Today's statistics of marriage is not very flattering and the movie represents maybe the worst way how it can end. This type of thrillers is becoming more popular in last years and people have many choices to comparing. Despite that, movie has very good rating from spectators.

''No kind of education can give you as much as this experience'' says Tal.

Yes, certainly there are many Erasmus students on FSS, but how to find them? I felt a little bit like a secret agent when I was walking round the university trying to find my respondent. It was Thursday and I had the last chance to find somebody for the interview. Now I can say that I was lucky one. I overheard someone's voice during a telephone call in a foreign language. I met a really nice student from Israel.

Matt Coates is twenty-one-year-old student from Vermont, US, who laughs at every question you ask him. Judging from his appearance,

you would say he is Irish but his accent and directness disclose his origin.

Greek student: “Life is short. You’d better live it to the full.”

I find myself sitting inside a cosy café with a law student from Greece. His name is Anastasios Trontzos, but he calls himself Tarsus. “It’s short, easy to remember and an internationally friendly nickname,” he explains. Tarsus travelled to Brno as a part of the Erasmus+ program one month ago and he’s really looking forward to the five months ahead of him.
