Invited by the International Theatre Festival of Kerala, the Slovak Debris Company theatrical ensemble, in cooperation with the Slovakia’s Theatre Institute, will perform its latest piece, Epic, from January 27 to February 3, the institute informed in its press release.

Taking inspiration from Bertolt Brecht, Epic sets out on a journey into unexplored theatrical terrain, where contemporary dance blends with a modern take on opera, kitsch entertainment and new technology, in an unapologetic mix with the films of the 1920s and 30s.

The International Theatre Festival of Kerala presents contemporary Indian and international theatre, music and performing arts, and is one of the biggest theatre festivals in India.
