Empedocles, a philosopher of ancient Greece, believed that four elements were fundamental to everything in existence: fire, water, air, and earth. Of course, mankind had probably already long been interested in the elements, and that interested did not diminish afterwards. The elements have been revered and worshiped and have been depicted in music and dance. We will discover how the natural elements relate to mankind through songs, sayings, and other activities.

The programme is based on a musical part but also on a spoken word that will be given in Czech language only. The programme will not be supplied with English subtitles.
