Head in Head

directed by: Marek Zákostelecký

We meet them in the mirror every day. Thanks to them, we see, hear, feel, eat, dream, think. You must have just recognised that it is about our heads. Despite their great importance, we know little about them. Keep your head up! We invite you to a unique, interactive, entertaining and informative lecture of the oldest and, at the same time, the youngest scientific discipline – craniology. Leading specialists will not only bring you the latest knowledge in the field, but will put their heads together to measure your stubbornness. You will also learn something about how to put things behind or how not to lose your head. The production is intended for children from 5 years of age. It is a stage adaptation of the award-winning book adaptation Head in Head by Czech authors David Böhm and Ondřej Buddeus.
