Boleslav Polívka

Boleslav Polívka (1949) is a Czech film and theatre actor, mime, playwright and screenwriter. Polívka played in more than 40 films.
Polívka's work as writer, director and mime performer is inspired by clowning, Commedia dell'arte, and early comedy films, but he occasionally introduces voice and words into his performances, which thus cross traditional theatrical boundaries into a form of "total acting". 
Since the early '90s he has founded and run several successful theatres in Brno, currently the Bolek Polivka Theatre. Nowadays Polivka gives guest performances at two theatres in Prague, the Vinohradské divadlo and the Divadlo Bez zábradlí, as well as theatres in Zlin.
His trademark is a bright yellow beret
