Das Prager Archa Theater ist als tschechisches Produktionshaus Zentrum internationaler szenischer Kunst. Als Ort der Begegnungen bietet es eigenen als auch freien Produktionen Platz, zeitspezifische Themen im Theaterraum und auch außerhalb theatral auszuhandeln. Der hauseigene Schwerpunkt fokussiert die Arbeit an einem dokumentarischen Theater, das durch die Arbeit mit sogenannten real-life protagonists (Protagonisten aus der Realität) geprägt ist. Über die Erzählungen der Laien im Bühnenraum können die marginalisierten Perspektiven der real-life protagonists öffentlich wahrgenommen und ausgehandelt werden.

Workshopleitende: Jana Svobodová, Gründerin des Archa.lab, und Direktorin des Festivals “Akcent International Festival of Documentary Theatre” und Ondřej Hrab, Direktor des Archa Theatre.

Jana Svobodová is a theatre director, lecturer, the founder of the Archa.lab, and artistic director of the Akcent International Festival of Documentary Theatre. In her work, she focuses on productions that interconnect professional artists and representatives of specific social groups. Among others, she has collaborated with residents of South African townships, the hip hop community, recent immigrants to the Czech Republic, the Roma community, various communities in the USA, and others. Her productions have been presented at festivals in the Czech Republic and internationally. The performance Ordinary People she codirected with Wen Hui was presented at the main program of Festival D’Avignon 2019 and festival D‘Automne in Paris 2019.

Ondřej Hrab is the director of Archa Theatre. He graduated from the University of Economics in Prague, and in the following years he worked as a sociologist. Under the communist regime he was active in non-conformist cultural activities. He initiated and organised clandestine performances by foreign artists, including The Living Theatre and the Japanese dancer Min Tanaka. In 1991, he became the director of the E. F. Burian Theatre in Prague, transforming this traditional repertory theatre into a contemporary cultural centre under the name “Archa Theatre”. Since Archa Theatre’s opening in 1994, he has continued to introduce contemporary performing arts to the Czech Republic, bringing renowned international artists to the country, and also developing Archa’s own cross-genre artistic projects. He has also been an active member of various national and European councils and groups that work on the topic of cultural exchange and networks.
