the research and development of czech performance group, handa gote, is based on
conceptual post-dramatic theater, which alternates with the instrumentation of sound installation,
non-verbal and dance theatre, live music, visual theatre and technologies. their work draws
heavily on minimalism, eastern philosophy and the ‘do-it-yourself’ movement. their work is
a mixture of czech craftsmanship, recycled objects and technologies, in
addition to the japanese haiku.
handa gote means ‘soldier’ in japanese.

during prague designblok 09, the group exhibited an installation that was an extension of the stage.
objects, masks, costumes, instruments, video, and cargo cult, all objects created for handa gote
performances were on show.
