Dokola is an intimate tale of connection (and disconnection) surrounding the intertwined sexual relationships of ten archetypal characters living in 2012 Prague. Dokola, A Broad’s Way Productions’ biggest show to date, is a highly unique and fresh production, which effortlessly marries theatre, film, dance and original music to explore these ten diverse relationships.

A Broad’s Way Productions, a company driven to produce original, multi-disciplinary theatre, has assembled an international writing team to update the famous script of Arthur Schnitzler’s “La Ronde”, choreographer Dagmar Spain (born in the Czech Republic and trained in Germany & New York) to help artistically embody the ten dynamic relationships, Jan Fisher (violinist with the popular Czech band ‘Zrni’) to compose an original music score, and Prague Film School filmmaker, Linus Ignatius, to incorporate elements of film in this colourful round. All of these different elements will be brought together by A Broad Way’s Director, Jay DeYonker. (our own RA! and RA Vladimir is in it!)

The adapted play follows ten dynamic characters on a cyclical journey through the gritty, sometimes awkward, and revealing conversations people have with their sexual partners behind closed doors. When director Jay DeYonker of New Jersey, was asked about the show’s content and the company’s choice to update the infamous play he said, “When ‘La Ronde’ was first conceived in 1897 it was banned for its raw content. With our adaptation, we have challenged ourselves to explore similarly controversial, yet highly relevant themes surrounding the sex lives of Prague’s diverse community.”

At the end of the semester, students are expected to make their own travel arrangements.That being said, we will order one bus from each residence hall for the largest group of students departing on May 25th at around the same time. (e.g. for the largest group of students departing between 10am – 12 pm – times may vary)
