HI PerformanCZ: Prague Visitors’ Programme
16–19 May 2018 and 19–22 September 2018, Prague
This year’s two pilot editions of a programme for dramaturgs, curators, critics, translators and other theatre professionals from outside the Czech Republic were organised in cooperation with theatre and arts organisations in Prague: Minor Theatre, DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Ponec – The Dance Venue, Alta Studio, Alfred ve dvoře Theatre, Vila Štvanice/ Štvanice Villa, Jatka78, Cirqueon, Venuše ve Švehlovce, Divadlo Na zábradlí/Theatre on the Balustrade, Palác Akropolis/Akropolis Palace, and Strašnice Theatre. In the course of this four-day marathon, groups from these theatres and organisations introduce themselves to visitors from abroad through their performances, but also by means of lectures, presentations, and organised discussions. The focus of the spring programme was on nonverbal and experimental theatre and works for children, while the September programme will be devoted primarily to drama. Where necessary, productions will be translated into English or accompanied by subtitles.
