The movement “Decent People“ has filed a criminal complaint against Brno National Theatre director Martin Glaser, Croat director Oliver Frljich and a group of actors over the showing of the controversial play “Our Violence, Your Violence“ at the festival Theatre World in Brno.
The head of the movement, Zdeněk Pernica, says the complaint was made on the grounds of desecration.
The play, in which Jesus rapes a Moslem woman has raised controversy in the Czech Republic.
Members of the group "Decent People" disrupted a showing of the play on Sunday night, jumping up on the stage, throwing paper balls at the actors and forming a human barrier to try to prevent the audience from watching the performance. They were eventually led out by the police.
