After ten years, the Forman Brothers Theatre is embarking on a new adventure. This new expedition is heading west… to the Wild West. This new performance called Deadtown, Forman Brothers’ Wild West Show, oscillates between cabaret theatre and silent film.


Deadtown brings into a time that has been genuinely captured only in black and white photographs and is as unforgiving to strangers as the turbulent sea is to theatre-makers setting sail from the center of Europe.

At the beginning of the 20th century, an illusionist, and owner of a cheap cabaret is living out his dreams in magical Prague. He is obsessed with the technical miracles of his times: film, photography, and the husky sound of the phonograph. Yet his favorite fantasies are those of riding across the plains of Arizona, drinking with weather-beaten gunslingers at a saloon. At least that’s the image he had gleaned from the Wild West silent westerns and yellowed photographs telling stories of a faraway land. And because his life is a constant balancing act between illusion and reality, it is not difficult for him to embark on a journey into the dream world.
