  • What does the future of artificial intelligence mean for our communities?

    Dubbed by the World Economic Forum as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution", the sweeping changes brought about by artificial intelligence (AI) are already changing the way we work, live, and communicate. But what are the implications of this new era for American communities that have yet to realize the benefits of previous industrial revolutions? As AI has become more prevalent and embedded in our daily existence, how is it changing humanity? Will AI cause some communities to continue to thrive at the expense of others, or will it open new pathways for full economic participation? Join us as we delve into AI's opportunities, potential perils, and the policy implications they engender. Breakfast will be served.

  • The Czech Embassy will host the legendary Czech rock band Garage & Tony Duchacek on October 8, 2019, at 7 pm. In the 1980s under communism in the former Czechoslovakia, the band was a popular underground group, a symbol of total artistic and uncompromising freedom. The band supported and played for students during the Velvet Revolution in 1989 and continued to be popular among the youth even after the revolution. In the words of late Czech President Václav Havel, “If you would like to know the sound of the Velvet revolution, then you should attend the concert of the Garage band from Prague.” Come jam with Garage & Tony Duchacek to the sounds of rock that inspired generations to rise up against totalitarianism thirty years ago.

    After the Velvet Revolution and the reinstatement of democracy in 1989, Garáž was finally able to officially record albums and put on concerts. It reached the peak of its popularity as the band toured extensively abroad for concerts throughout Western Europe and New York and played at major festivals in France, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium.

    Today, Garage’s songs and music continue to be based on the personality of its charismatic leading singer Tony Duchacek, who joined the band in 1982 and is the author of all the lyrics founded on unique, direct, suburban slang with a lot of poetic imagination.

This year, the festival coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, a civic movement started by students in former Czechoslovakia. The exhibition, created by today’s students of Media and Didactic Illustration from the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art at the University of West Bohemia, illustrates the revolution and its courageous students as well as dissident leaders such as Václav Havel and Marta Kubišová. To complete the program, exceptionally gifted Czech mezzo-soprano Pavlína Horáková and pianist Camilla Mráz will perform Marta Kubišová’s most moving and renowned songs. Remember and relive the power of the powerless and hear the melodies and lyrics that united the masses through it all.

    The Velvet Effect is an exhibition of illustrations and graphics, produced under the guidance of professor and acclaimed author Renáta Fučíková by her students of Media and Didactic Illustration from the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, Czech Republic. The students, who were all born after the Velvet Revolution, interviewed witnesses and captured in illustrations the movement’s most influential personalities, tide turning moments, and their effect on society.

    About the Artist:
    Czech mezzo-soprano Pavlína Horáková has entertained audiences across musical genres. Among her accomplishments, she performed the title role in the opera Carmen with Opera Amore in New York City and sang a number of solo recitals.

  • The Embassy of the Czech Republic will host the US launch of the illustrated book ABCZ or All You Need to Know about Czechia and the Czechs with author Denisa Šedivá on September 19, 2019, at 6 pm. Nostalgic while living abroad, the Czech author initially began conceptualizing a children’s book to remember her beloved homeland. As the project grew, the book in its published form is meant for everyone of all ages. It profoundly explores modern Czech cultural identity, using each letter of the alphabet to represent keywords in topics such as history, technology, gastronomy, geography, art, and design. Via concise descriptions and chic graphics, the book beautifully encompasses all you need to know about the Czech Republic and its people. The book was named the Most Beautiful Czech Book of 2018 in the category of textbooks and scholastic resources for all levels by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Museum of Czech Literature. 


    Via the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2019 – Marta Kubišová, the Czech Embassy remembers the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution and its heroine, Marta Kubišová, who helped unite the people through her renowned ballad, a symbol of national resistance. The Czech title of the above stated book is ABCZ aneb H jako Havel, which emphasizes the importance of late dissident and later President Václav Havel in Czech culture.  In fact, the Velvet Revolution, Václav Havel, and the ballad are all considered within the integral understanding of Czech cultural identity in the book.

  • In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, the Davis Performing Arts Center joins the Czech Embassy in hosting Kašpar Theater Company's performance of Václav Havel's Audience, featuring director and actor Jakub Špalek, and Jan Potměšil, who was a student activist in Prague in 1989. Following the play, the visiting artists join Georgetown students who visited the Prague Quadrennial and studied with Švanda Theater for a free ranging talk about Prague then and now, as well as collaboration and activism.

    Event Details:
    Date/Time: October 2, 2019, at 7 pm

    Venue: Devine Studio Theatre
    Davis Performing Arts Center
    Georgetown University
    37th and O St., N.W., Washington, DC

    RSVP by October 1 to
    https://playaudience.eventbrite.com

    Audience
    Playwright: Václav Havel, directed by: Jakub Špalek
    Cast: Jan Potměšil and Jakub Špalek
    Audience belongs to a trilogy of partly autobiographical one-act plays also known as the Vaněk Trilogy, comprising Audience (1975), Protest (1978) and Mistake (1983), based on Havel’s experience of being forced to work in a brewery and under constant harassment from the communist regime. Taking place in the brewery’s office, Audience is a meeting between the brewery’s manager Sladek and employee Vaněk. While the manager is clearly opening too many beers and inducing binge drinking, it is less clear what he wants from Vaněk, though it ultimately transpires he has a deal to offer.

    Kašpar Theater Company in Celetná, Prague, Czech Republic
    Jakub Špalek established the Kašpar (Jester) Theater Company in 1990. Its repertory includes classical plays such as Cyrano and Richard II as well as plays by contemporary playwrights like Friel, Kelly, Ives, Villquist, O’Rowe, McDonagh, Vyrypayev.

    After many years on their permanent stage at Celetná Theater, the Kašpar Theater Company decided to open a new venue called the Clubhouse. They used this new space to renew the tradition of “Apartment Theater.” Originally, “Apartment Theater” involved the performance of a play inside a house or apartment. It developed during the communist era as a way for performers to stage forbidden productions while avoiding the censorship of the government. Under the slogan “we can’t get closer” the Kašpar Theater Company presents twelve plays in the Clubhouse, including Audience by Václav Havel. Following the tradition of “Apartment Theater,” the company puts on these productions with small audiences in the more confined spaces offered by their new venue. These plays are “the private pleasure and enjoyment” of the company.

    Jakub Špalek
    A distinctive, hard-headed, talented actor, director, and principal, Jakub Špalek is a boss who puts his heart and emotions into everything. In 1990 he founded the Kašpar theatrical association, and five years later Celetná Theater where Kašpar and other ensembles perform. He is a trained actor who also directs.

    Jan Potměšil
    In the summer of 1989, Jan Potměšil finished his studies at the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and joined Vinohrady Theater. Later that year, he met up with students and actors who were going to Ostrava to persuade the miners to support the Velvet Revolution. On the way back, his car crashed on a frozen road. Since then, Potměšil has been paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair. He has performed in the role of several major characters in plays at Kašpar Theater; the most notably Charlie Gordon in Flowers for Algernon (more than ten years in the repertoire), the title role in Richard III (for which he received the Alfred Radok Award for Best Actor), Jesus in Felix Mitterer’s Trouble in the House of God, and Polonius in Hamlet.

  • The Embassy of the Czech Republic will screen veteran filmmaker Olga Sommerova's documentary Magic Voice of a Rebel (Magický hlas rebelky) on September 24, at 6 pm. The brilliant career of Marta Kubišová, a talented singer and three-time winner of the Golden Nightingale music award, ended with the occupation of Czechoslovakia.

After twenty years’ of enforced silence, however, she was able to stage a spectacular comeback during the Velvet Revolution. View key episodes from the private, professional and dissident chapters of Marta Kubišová’s life through archival footage and interviews with friends, such as Dana Němcová, Pavel Kohout and Jaroslav Hutka. (Dir. Olga Sommerová, 2014, Czech with English subtitles)

  • Enjoy an evening of traditional Hawaiian music and a theatrical performance!  Hawaiian Mission Houses presents a one-person play of the life of Henry ʻŌpūkahaʻia, a young Hawaiian who came to the United States in 1808 for a promotional speaking tour. His life and memoirs inspired others to carry on his message, and the year 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of a group of missionaries setting sail from the United States to Hawaii.

     

    Two schoolgirl samplers in the DAR Museum share a connection with the Hawaiian Mission Houses. One was made by Maka, a Native Hawaiian, at a missionary school on Maui. The other was made by the daughter of missionaries, Isabella Chamberlain, whose childhood home is now the Hawaiian Mission House Museum. The samplers will be on exhibit exclusively for the performance.

     

    Doors open at 6:00pm. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note there is no food or drink allowed in the theater.

     

    This event made possible by a generous donation from the Hawaii State Society Daughters of the American Revolution

    Moses Goods is one of Hawaiʻi’s most prominent theatre artists. Originally from the island of Maui and now based in Honolulu, he has traveled nationally and internationally performing his original work to a wide range of audiences.  His body of work ranges from full length plays to theatrical storytelling pieces – most of which are strongly rooted in Native Hawaiian culture.

     

    Pōʻai Lincoln will be performing Hawaiian music that provides a cultural context to the play. She is the Assistant Curator of Programs at Hawaiian Mission Houses and an accomplished musician.

  • Creator and director of The Jüdische Kulturbund Project Gail Prensky and Associate Producer Mark Haney will lead the workshop Exploring Issues of Oppression through Music, Art, and Literature at the Embassy of the Czech Republic on October 5, 2019, from 11 am-2:30 pm. This day marks the anniversary of the birth of former Czech President Václav Havel, who through his leadership, helped to peacefully overthrow the communist regime. As part of the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2019, the workshop stresses the use of art as a tool for dealing with oppression. This year’s festival banner personality Marta Kubišová used her voice, her signature ballad A Prayer for Martha, to unite the people during the Velvet Revolution, restoring freedom and democracy to the nation.  

    The Jüdische Kulturbund Project leads workshops, collaborating with educators, musicians, performing artists, and visual artists to produce engaging experiences for a variety of ages. The goals of the initiative are to raise awareness, augment one’s perception of the past, catalyze attendees into action, share a little-known inspirational story of the past, and to recognize contemporary mirrors perhaps within our own families, communities, and selves. For samples of the workshops, please visit: https://www.judischekulturbund.com/education-program/.

Several years later she has brought together select talent, partners, and like-minded supporters to make this project possible and then interviewed artists living under oppression in various countries. Her hope and dream is that the project will serve as a beacon of inspiration to all people. For the last 25 years, Gail has written, produced, and directed a broad range of media projects in film, multimedia, books, and exhibitions. She produces independent projects focusing on advocacy, art, human rights, international, and music themes.
