From Marek Prystup: One day I came across the diary of Vaslav Nijinski in a library. I was mesmerized by the thoughts expressed by this wonderful man while he was confined in an insane asylum. I started to explore the unusual journey of this artist, and dancer, whose life was sacrificed for the love of truth and humankind. The idea came to me right away to create a one man show based on his diary and try to express his feelings through movement and music.
“The Clown of God” is a trial to analyze the process of expanding human consciousness through the life of a great artist and a great man.
