The idea was simple: 20 Polish artists were to travel from Gdansk to Prague in caravans, visiting and performing in cities they passed through. The big finale takes place today and tomorrow on Vltava’s bank.
For the next two days, the cobblestoned promenade at Rašínovo nábřeží, in front of the Avoid gallery, will host a number of performances by Polish, Czech, Slovak and Hungarian artists. While Thursday is going to be dominated by the Poles, Friday features the Czech maestros. The event is part of a bigger project called ‘736 km’– the exact distance between Gdansk and Prague–which aims to promote cultural cooperation in central Europe.
Today, following an all-afternoon exhibition in caravans (2 p.m. – 9 p.m.), two bands from Gdańsk: Gówno, know as the pioneer of rodeo-punk, and Samorządowcy will hit the stage.
Friday features Czech bands like Vložte kočku.
On Saturday, the crew leaves Prague, returning to Gdansk.
