A dance drama that won't leave you alone for a moment...

In 2022, 100 years have passed since the birth of the South African cardiac surgeon, Professor Christiaan Neethling Barnard, who was the first to perform a successful heart transplant in 1967. The show Srdce tells the story of Erika and Sebastian, two medical students. From their carefree studies at college, a story full of dramatic moments unfolds. Their lives will be divided for a time. The last time Sebastian sees his beloved Erika is as a member of the transplant team.

Erika's fate really crossed the path of the author of the story, doctor Milana Pokorná. Only years later did she find a way to convey the powerful experience. Without words. To implement the project, she approached Richard Ševčík, choreographer and soloist of Ballet DJKT with a flair for portraying individual characters and a gift for telling a story through movement. She left the space to the authors of musical works, rock musicians and composers Jan Rejent and Pavlo Lochman.
