Dawn of the Magicians was created for a small performance space in the Museum of Modern Art in Prague. Weis, with longtime collaborator Jennifer Miller, presented short works she revised for the Czech audience.

In a rare opportunity for Weis, the Czech audience participated in a startlingly honest post-show discussion. They expressed conflicted and conflicting feelings regarding the United States and the constant stream of performers passing through Prague from the USA.

The following is an excerpt from a rehearsal that was shot in WeisAcres, Weis' SoHo studio.
Performers: Miller, Weis
