“The Czech state may call the tune, but its musicians just won’t play along.”
In 80s Communist Prague, nothing is more dangerous than jazz. Struggling against threats of censorship and imprisonment, a small group of musicians band together to create ‘The ‘Jazz Section’, an act of rebellion with fatal consequences. This dynamic gig-theatre show focuses on the resilience of musicianship and how sometimes real art can make a stronger statement than any political party.
